I have known AHF work through different conferences about medical students which have helped me personally to understand what a christian doctor is, not just by their seminars, but even through their example and their life, as they have not just shared with us knowledge but Christ and life. the AHF library has been a special blessings cause there we could have our bible studies, and case studies, and have fellowship and read too. But it is stills a "refuge" for reading and finding good books about my residency, as opportunity like this are hard to find.

My name is Juarda Hasani. I am following the first year of specialization in “Internal Medicine”. This is my seventh year of studying at AHF library and it has been a great help for me as a student to be in contact with the latest editions of medical textbooks, atlases and unlimited free internet, but above all this was where I used to know about Jesus, who is leading my life since four years ago. Thank you for everything you have been doing for us during all these years. This library has been a big blessing for me and many other students, who are now working as doctors all around the country, showing their medical skills and faith to the communities. Hoping that this library continues its mission, I want to thank you once again for helping me to be a Christian Doctor.

Sincerely

Juarda Hasani

My name is Endri Gjonbrataj. I am the librarian working at AHF. First of all I want to thank you for your heart and kindness toward this new medical generation that is growing here under your compassionate care. I’ve been studying here for seven years as a medical student and now, thanks God, I’m a doctor. Last year I lost my father and working in this library was like a rain in desert for me. I failed my exams and sorrows surrounded my family one after the other in a way that my life was filled with endless sufferings. This has not been just a working place for me, but a strong reason to keep myself engaged to life and exams, which are now over. The latest editions of clinical textbooks and internet have helped me and all the students be updated to medicine. All the students here can hear about Jesus and join us every Wednesday in our weekly meeting of BSKSH (Albanian Christian Students’ Covenant). We all thank you also for the annual conference on March, joining together in training the students, preaching the Gospel and entertaining activities. These have been great blessings for us and have changed many lives. Hoping that like me, many other students will have the chance to change their way of living and learning in this library, I show to you the greatest gratitude. Thank you very much. Blessings fill your lives.

Sincerely,

I've heard about Albanian Health Fund 7 years before when I was a 2-nd year student, by one of the anual week-end conferences, where I finally knew christian doctors and students. It have been very incouraging for me all these years to have the possibilty to have a place where I could read good medical literature and have free access to the most trusted medical websites, a place where could found always friends who could help with seminars and medical case reports when I was a student, and good advices now as a doctor.
Also having the possibility to use the room next door to the library for weekly Bsksh meetings, have been a blessing because we could gather with all the christian medical students and encourage each other but also to see how nonchristian students reading in the next room to join us during meetings and some exept Christ.
The weekend conferences in october and march have had definitely an impact with the appropriate medical information the AHF doctors had shared with the doctors in albania, and testimonys,
encouragement, sharing of the good news and medical teachings they have offered for the students.
I've seen professional and life changings during these conferences and can't imagine the hospital without AHF library contributes.
Thank you very much for all you are doing in Gods name for Albania.

I have joined the AHF Library since I was in the first year of the Medical Faculty. Being part of the AHF Library has given me the possibility not only to use eficently all the coherent medical literature , but even I found out the Weekly BSKSH ( branch of IFES ) meetings. I have seen students expressing their gratefulness regarding to the help they have received about the place where to study and use most of medical books with a minimal cost. What is the most important , I have seen how BSKSH's meetings have been a blessing for christian students and how many medical students have accepted Christ .I have experienced the AHF Library as a student , as part of the Leadership of BSKSH , and lastly as a worker. In summary I would mention the annual conferences covered by AHF's contributions , where medical students are blessed while there are treated strong christian messages and professional medical topics. It has been a great opportunity , a blessing experiencing the help , activities of AHF Staff. Thank you again , and God Bless you !

I have got to know Albanian Health Fund about 16 years ago.It was the first medical humanitarian organization that helped the isolated Country of Albania after the fall of the dictatorial comunist regime.On 1992 there were not enough medication, surgicals gloves and instruments nd equipment.AHF brought many donations.On the year 2000 AHf sponsored to donate a endoscopy unit for the digestive department.It was unique on its kind and since then this equipment has saved the lives of many patients with upper and lower digestive bleeding.AHf doctors come for mission trips 3 time per year and organize traing conferences and seminars for medical students and residents and doctors as well.They have opened a medical Library near the University Medical Center where students and doctors can sit and read books , journals and use internet for free.AHF has donated many medical textbooks each year to 250 students.The medical literature is lacking in our country and this has been a great help for the medical education of the new generation of doctors.
Personale I have learned lot from Albanian Health Fund doctors.First they itroduced me with the christian faith and how to serve others and to be a better doctor with compassion for patients.Their lives were an example for us.The American doctors would come in Albanian to teach us as volonteers by paing themselves the flight ticket and giving from their time
Albanian Health Fund doctors have teach albanian colleagues how to do cardiac by pas surgery and other dificult procedures.
Because of this longterm dedication to the country of Albania AHF doctors have recived 4 Medals of Gratitude from 2 Presidents of Albania.There is no other nonprofit organization in Albania that has recived such evaluation
I strongly support this organzation
