Shane Memorial Medical Missionary Award


The Shane Memorial ICMDA Medical Missionary Award is awarded to a young missionary serving in a developing country.

The award is given every two years and presented at a regional conference or the ICMDA World Congress.

The first winner of the Shane Memorial Medical Missionary Award was given posthumously to Dr Alex in 2018. Dr Alex was an Indian missionary doctor who worked with his wife in a remote head hunting tribe in central India. Together they looked after the tribe's medical needs and translated Scripture into the Bondo tribal language. Dr Alex died in 2017 before he could receive the award. The award was presented to his wife at the 16th World Congress in Hyderabad 2018.
