The founding of a top class hospital for some of the world's poorest people
Klaus-Dieter and Martina John--both brilliant, talented, and highly qualified doctors--turned their backs on lucrative careers to follow their dream to open a first-rate medical facility for the Indians of the Peruvian Andes, some of the world's poorest people. The Peruvian Andes natives suffer appallingly from the diseases of poverty and, although they make up approximately 40 percent of Peru's population, are ignored by the authorities.
Having studied at the universities of Harvard, Yale, and Johannesburg during his training as a surgeon, Dr. Klaus-Dieter John together with his wife, Dr. Martina John, a pediatrician, developed a concept for a modern hospital in the Peruvian Highlands.
Turning down other offers, including a professorship, they set themselves the task of raising the millions of dollars needed. God opened the hearts and consciences of individuals and companies to create not just a health center, but a fully equipped hospital. Their story and vision has captured attention around the world and today they have the backing of 180 corporations and 50,000 private supporters.
The hospital’s name, Diospi Suyana, means "we trust in God" in Quechua, the native language of the people it serves. It is a testament to their experience that with God the impossible can happen. The incredible conviction and profound faith of the Johns will refresh your heart and stir your spirit.

Klaus-Dieter John studied at the universities of Harvard, Yale, and Johannesburg during his training as a surgeon. He and his wife Dr. Martina John, a pediatrician, have dedicated their lives to the establishment of the hospital in Peru.Review:
"As a scientist I am deeply interested in the evidences that study of the cosmos provides for the existence of God. However, I am not simply a theist but a Christian and one of the central Christian claims is that it is possible to have a living relationship with God through Jesus Christ. Hence part of the evidence for the truth of Christianity will be found in the testing of that claim in everyday life. The story of Diospi Suyana hospital is a remarkable example of what happens when people take God seriously and I heartily recommend this account as compelling evidence that there is a God who cares." -- John Lennox, Professor of Mathematics, University of Oxford "Of course Klaus John believes in miracles. His life is a story of God's intervention." -- Berliner Tagesspiegel "I cannot ever remember being so moved just from reading a book." -- Joshua Searle
