The idea of Linking Hands was conceived in June 1999 by 3 ardent doctors who felt a strong call to rally Christian medical workers for God's work in missions. More specifically, the intention would be to connect voluntary Christian medical professionals and healthcare workers (dentists, pharmacists, nurses, etc.) to humanitarian projects around the world. It mean the requisite to initially establish a membership database of Christian workers and volunteers and a partnership register of major and minor Christian healthcare and humanitarian agencies. The ministry would be inter-denominational, working with all Christians from the mainstream religion.

During its inception, a lot of effort was made to publicize the good intentions of the ministry. Apart from necessary and consistent prayer, a host of existing local and overseas medical and non-medical contacts were contacted in aid of feedback, advice, consultation and participation. The overall response was buoyant and encouraging. The ministry officially began operating in November 1999.

Linking Hands today is operated by the following members:
