Describe the change you would like to see in the community as a result of this Advance project
Mongolia is predominantly Buddhism country and 1.5% Christians. We would like to see Mongolians think positively towards Christian faith for goodness and love shown to Mongolians and their communities. Also, we would like to see patients and their family members find peace and support through Grace Hospice when they need it the most. Moreover, we would like to see Mongolian government be challenged to provide more of Hospice programs for citizens who cannot afford them.
