Medical Benevolent Fund
SIM Angola partners with several church-related medical institutions, specifically: CEML Hospital, Rio da Huila Hospital, and Cavango Clinic. SIM missionaries volunteer their services at these institutions. Each institution operates on a self-funded basis and charges patient fees that should cover salaries and other basic operating costs. However, due to poor economic conditions, especially during but also after the COVID 19 pandemic, an increasing number of patients are unable to pay their fees in full or at all. This project will subsidize hospital and medical care costs for patients with proven need for assistance.
