What We Do
The Luke Commission serves the most isolated and underserved people of Eswatini with free, comprehensive, compassionate health care. At the fixed-site Miracle Campus in central Eswatini, the TLC team provides outpatient, inpatient, emergency, surgical, and specialty care. Across Eswatini, TLC delivers mobile health services through over 100 outreaches annually.
With compassionate, comprehensive, patient-centered care. TLC’s platform of standard services includes family planning, minor surgical procedures, HIV services, cancer screening, pharmacy services, counseling, and more—42 health services and counting.
TLC staff recite TLC’s core values the TLC DNA at a group prayer circle as each workday begins. These values inform conduct, guide decisions, and deepen compassionate care.
We choose to respond to correction, redirection, and instruction promptly and with gratitude. As learners, we recognize that others have deeper understanding and broader perspective.
Looks for Solutions
We choose to engage every challenge by asking for God’s insight, seeking understanding, and determining a course of action as a team. To protect this approach, we reject complaining and gossip.
Committed to Unity
We choose to trust each other, practice transparency, and live interdependent (not independent) lives. When unity is threatened or compromised, we lovingly and boldly engage in caring crucial conversations.
Dedicated to Every Last One
We choose to care for every last patient with compassion, no matter the cost of time or energy. Like the shepherd who leaves 99 safe sheep for one vulnerable sheep, we are unshakably committed to Every Last One.
Not About Me = Servanthood
We choose to focus on others instead of ourselves. We joyfully give up our personal expectations and demands in order to be fully available to serve others, especially the most isolated and underserved.
Attitude of Gratefulness
We choose to look for and celebrate God’s daily and miraculous provision. We give thanks to God, knowing God has given us everything we need to love and serve him as we love and serve others.

The third line in HIV treatment is the last line, almost like the principle “three strikes and you’re out.” Sounds ominous. Sounds dreadful. Sounds fatal. This is HIV/AIDS, after all. However, as in Sabelo’s case, his third strike may be a home run. Sabelo came to the...
It’s remarkable how a mind, and body, responds to intended tenderness and tenacious attention. Jabulane has been a patient at The Luke Commission for two years. He is mentally disabled, and his past saw him isolated at the end of a chain for ten years. When his family...
