The Centre is a general health centre with expertise in the treatment of leprosy. Its vision is to minister to the whole person as exemplified in the life of Jesus. Many former patients are living testimony to the witness of Danja in Niger. The ministry impacts two unreached people groups, the Hausa and the Fulani.
Founded by SIM almost in 1956, the hospital is now run by The Leprosy Mission in association with SIM and seeks to address the loss of dignity that many people affected by leprosy and their families have experienced.

Quechua Radio Mosoj Chaski ("the messenger" in the Quechua language) has been broadcasting the message of Christ across Bolivia for 16 years. With programming entirely in the Quechua language, the radio serves more than two million Quechua people in Bolivia.
The project began 19 years ago when missionaries from SIM and other organisations saw the need to reach the Bolivian Quechua with the Gospel. The majority of the Quechua people in Bolivia live in very isolated parts of the Andes mountains so the radio is an effective means to evangelise and disciple the Quechua people.
Quechua Radio Mosoj Chaski exists to spread the Gospel, uplift the Quechua community through health and other relevant programming, and strengthen the Quechua church through Bible teaching.
Staff at Mosoj Chaski write and produce their own programs that are aired every dawn and dusk. Mosoj Chaski also prints and distributes booklets in Quechua, and runs a mobile Bible school and bookstore.

Galmi Hospital opened its doors in 1950 to care for people who had no other nearby medical facilities. Today, Galmi Hospital serves more than 300 to 400 patients daily at its outpatient clinic, and holds 100 beds for adults and children who require a variety of medical, surgical or obstetric care. As a Christian hospital, Galmi Hospital provides compassionate, reliable medical care that opens the doors to sharing the Gospel in an area where over 99% of the population are followers of Islam or animists.
After decades in the harsh sub-Saharan climate, the original hospital buildings have deteriorated significantly. In order to enable the hospital to provide an uninterrupted service, redevelopment has been conducted in stages.
SIM’s Galmi Hospital Redevelopment Project is working to restore deteriorating hospital infrastructure so the Gospel outreach of Galmi can continue unhindered. The surgical, pharmacy and obstetric wards have already been updated. The next phase is to update the pediatric wards and administration building when funds become available.

SIM Sudan has been working in Mabaan County, South Sudan since 1937. Multiple wars have kept the medical program from running continuously but in 2006 SIM Sudan was able to return to the area.
The SIM Doro Clinic (previously known as the South Sudan Clinic and the Grieve Memorial Clinic) was re-established in honour of SIM missionaries, Dr Bob Grieve and his wife, Claire, who were killed when the hospital was bombed during the Second World War. Until the outbreak of the civil war in Sudan, it was one of the only clinics providing care for the people in Doro, Upper Nile State.
SIM Sudan is committed to reach the local Mabaan community and also provide medical services to some of the 120,000 refugees escaping war-torn Sudan. The majority of the refugees are from Muslim or animist backgrounds and few have had the opportunity to hear the Gospel. Through the compassionate care the clinic offers, these displaced people can learn of God’s love and grace.
The SIM Doro Clinic aims to provide compassionate, Christ-centred health care to individuals and communities of the Mabaan County and surrounding areas including:
1. Primary health care and maternal healthcare services for 30,000 patients per year.
2. Nutritional and medical support for 300 children with Severe Acute Malnutrition (SAM).
3. Leprosy treatment and other necessary medical support for 100 patients a month.
4. Weekly village mobile clinics and health education sessions in 2 distant villages (Note: this program has been suspended until further notice due to the civil war).
5. Capacity Building of our local Sudanese staff through weekly continuing medical education (CME) classes.
6. Family Health planning services in the community and clinic.
7. Relevant health education programs for all patients and their families who utilise our services.
8. Daily devotions with our staff and patients.
9. Share the Gospel in word and deed and seek to reach the myriad of least reached people groups that surround us in the refugee camps.

This project provides a safe and healing Christian home for young women who have experienced sex trafficking, rape, forced labour, domestic violence, and other forms of gender-based exploitation. It’s inspired by Isaiah 61:3, “To all who mourn in Israel, He will give a crown of beauty for ashes, a joyous blessing instead of mourning, festive praise instead of despair.”
This is the sister-project of our Redlight-Greenlight project in Girls off the Streets Fund – some of the girls from the aftercare home are transferred to Beauty for Ashes home after they turn 18.
