    Heroic U.S. Ebola Doctor Honored in NYC for Long-Time 
    Medical Missionary Service in Liberia, West Africa
    NY Jewish Philanthropists Present Prestigious $500,000 AMH Gerson L’Chaim Prize to SIM Missionary Dr. Rick Sacra; will help extend and expand SIM’s healthcare ministry in impoverished Liberia

    NEW YORK, NY — An American missionary doctor who risked his life at the height of Liberia’s 2014 Ebola crisis, and has spent more than 20 years doing medical missionary service in Africa, was honored for his many years of service there with SIM (www.simusa.org), an international Christian mission organization.

    AMH Gerson L’Chaim Prize
    SIM Missionary, 56-year-old-Dr. Rick Sacra, Massachusetts native, received the prestigious 2018 AMH Rabbi Erica and Mark Gerson L’Chaim (“To Life”) Prize for Outstanding Christian Medical Missionary Service last night (Jan. 31, 2019). The annual award—the largest of its kind in the world—supporting clinical care in Africa—comes with a $500,000 gift.

    The prize is awarded by African Mission Healthcare (AMH), 
    www.AfricanMissionHealthcare.org, a non-profit organization that strengthens mission hospitals to aid those in greatest need. AMH was co-founded in 2010 by entrepreneur, investor, and philanthropist, Mark Gerson and medical missionary, Dr. Jon Fielder, who is the organization’s chief executive; the two became friends in college. Gerson, and his wife, Rabbi Erica Gerson, established, and began funding, the annual award in 2016. They jointly presented the 2018 prize to Dr. Sacra during the awards ceremony.

    “I was overwhelmed when I learned about the award and am extremely honored to receive it, which I accept on behalf of all those serving God with their medical skills,” said Dr. Sacra who returned from Liberia for the awards ceremony. “I’m so grateful for the financial resources, and team of people God is putting in place to deploy them. This kind of support opens the door to accomplish things we’ve been dreaming about for years, which will benefit our patients and our community by improving the healthcare of thousands of Liberians.”
    Dr. Sacra is the third recipient of the AMH Gerson L’Chaim Prize.

    Why Dr. Sacra?
    Award benefactor Mark Gerson explained why Dr. Sacra received the 2018 AMH Gerson L’Chaim Prize.

    L’Chaim means ‘to life’—and it is the gift that the Christian medical missionaries serving in Africa provide to so many with remarkable effectiveness. Dr. Rick Sacra is a wonderful example of the love, compassion, and skills needed to provide this gift of life. When faced with adversity, including civil war, inadequate resources, and Ebola, he demonstrated heroism and commitment that we can only marvel at. When you add his passion and plans for training African health professionals, strengthening ELWA Hospital, and caring for the poor of Liberia, it’s very clear why he was selected as our 2018 AMH Gerson L’Chaim Prize winner.” 

    What the $500,000 will be used for?

    Dr. Sacra will use the prize money to strengthen facilities at SIM’s ELWA (Eternal Love Winning Africa) Hospital in Monrovia, the capital of Liberia; train Liberian Family Medicine residents; establish an intensive care unit with trained staff; and install solar power capacity.


    While caring for women with prolonged and crisis labor at ELWA Hospital, often operating to deliver their babies, Dr. Sacra was unknowingly exposed to and contracted the Ebola virus. He was flown back to the U.S. for specialized intensive treatment. On recovering, several months later, he returned to Liberia once more to continue his work.

    SIM/Missionary Work

    During his childhood, Dr. Sacra became inspired to pursue medical missionary work after hearing the story of the Good Samaritan. He is one of many doctors and other medical professionals serving with SIM in places of need around the world, using their skills to help share God’s love through their care, presence and example.

    He first went to Liberia to serve on a short-term mission trip in 1987. He and Debbie, his wife, moved there for full-time service in 1995. When civil war drove many Liberian refugees into neighboring Ivory Coast, the Sacras temporarily relocated there to serve them, before returning to Liberia.

    During his time in Liberia with SIM, Dr. Sacra has provided patient care training for medical workers and helped found ELWA’s HIV/AIDS counseling and treatment program.  

    AMH-Christian Broadcasting Network Matching Grant

    In addition to the $500,000 L’Chaim Prize, Dr. Sacra is also one of the beneficiaries of a matching grant collaboration between AMH and Christian Broadcasting Network (CBN), which is providing a total of $2 million across eight mission teaching hospitals, including ELWA Hospital, in Africa to expand care, training and infrastructure.
