White Cross

The ministry of White Cross grew out of the Red Cross work being done everywhere during the First World War. This helped meet the tremendous need for medical supplies. In 1919, the year after the war ended, American Baptist women inaugurated the White Cross program. Three years later, the women of the NAB joined this effort, marking the birth of the NAB White Cross.

Since its inception, NAB White Cross has directly and tangibly participated in the compassionate care ministry of hospitals in Cameroon and Nigeria. Through White Cross, NAB churches across the United States and Canada are able to partner with medical staff and NAB missionaries in Cameroon. This partnership fills a critical gap in tangible medical needs. This is accomplished by cutting and sewing baby layettes—baby blankets, diapers, and jackets—rolling bandages, and cutting absorbent squares, as well as providing sheets, pillowcases, hospital supplies, guest house supplies, and other medical supplies. Once, we even received a sawmill!
