The Danja Center for Health and Leprosy (CSL Danja) is a general purpose health centre, with expertise in the treatment of leprosy, and a general dispensary with three wards and many ancillary services. Adjacent to it is the Danja Fistula Center, a centre for the treatment of women with obstetrical and traumatic fistula. The Danja Fistula Center provides care for about 250 women per year. Both centres are about the dramatic renewal of lives. In partnership with local SIM-related churches, the centre shares the hope of Jesus Christ with patients - including those from less-reached peoples, the Hausa and Fulani. Local evangelists present the gospel daily, and the JESUS Film is shown to those awaiting medical examination. Many former patients came to faith at Danja and now are living testimonies serving the Lord as teachers, pastors, farmers, traders, and in other walks of life.
