St. Luke’s is based in Wheaton, Illinois. The Foundation owns, operates, and directs funds to Soddo Christian Hospital which functions within Ethiopia as a private limited company.
The vision of the Board of Directors is to establish a private hospital in Wolaitta, Ethiopia, as a medical training center that will minister to the needs of the people in Ethiopia. Due to its strategic location, the Foundation seeks to use the hospital as a training center for medical workers across Africa. For this reason, Soddo Christian Hospital is one of only ten surgical resident training sites in Africa for the Pan African Academy of Christian Surgeons.
The purpose of the institution is to supply severely needed health care in a compassionate, and sacrificing manner with the utmost quality, industry and integrity.
