MEETING CRITICAL NEEDS FOR SIM'S MEDICAL MINISTRIES WORLDWIDE
In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, SIM’s medical ministry network is equipping hospitals and health care workers around the world for what lies ahead. The suffering and uncertainty of the crisis spans the globe. Equipment and supply shortages make responding even more difficult, especially in countries where resources are few and health systems are fragile. But SIM is now raising funds to provide vital equipment and training to hospitals in Africa, Asia, and South America.
SIM’s COVID-19 Health Ministry Immediate Response project will ensure immediate assistance gets to the front lines. This may mean supplying funds directly, arranging the supply of life-saving equipment, or helping train local workers how to triage and treat patients. In a survey of SIM’s global medical ministries, located in some 30 countries, the most pressing need is for personal protective equipment (PPE) for staff working with suspected COVID-19 patients. Decisions on where to allocate funds from the Immediate Response Project will be made by a team of SIM health professionals who are in touch with their colleagues around the world. The funds will go to wherever they are most needed.
