Missions

There is a book called, Mission Handbook: U.S. and Canadian Protestant Ministries Overseas 2007-2009 which is over 600 pages long and contains the listings of hundreds and hundreds of Christian missionary organizations. For hundreds of years, Christian missionaries have gone into all the world not only preaching the gospel, but providing medical care, food, housing, and education to people of every race, religion, and virtually every nation on the face of the earth—often at great personal risk to themselves.

So I was just wondering: can anyone think of any Hindu, Buddhist or Muslim missions that have provided food, medical care and education to people who are not of their own nation or religion?
