General Medicine Mobile Clinic
There is a far better way to provide healthcare and reduce the pressure on already overwhelmed clinics and hospitals: mobile health clinics that are nurse-led, doctor-supervised, and capable of serving a large population.
Right now, through a unique partnership, we have the chance to buy and put into service two mobile medical clinics that will reach 10 isolated settlements with about 238,000 people. We’re talking about community-transforming potential here.
Side by Side and Hope4Health, the organization that will manage this project for us, are in discussions with the Gauteng Health Department, the South Africa Medical Association (SAMA), the South Africa Nurses Association, area hospitals, and other healthcare entities.
All are enthusiastic about this plan and believe that once success has been demonstrated — significantly improved health care AND reduced pressure on hospitals — there is great potential for long-term funding and expansion to many other South African communities.
Side by Side Christian Academy is now open!
A huge THANK YOU to you and others — you made this happen by responding generously to our 2021 year-end campaign.
In recognition of our 15-yr partnership, the Melaong family chose this name for their new center.
The team is thrilled to be back to work doing what they love. The kids are settling in, learning, and growing in their faith.
