Who we areThe SIM Doro Clinic is a faith-based Primary Health Care Center that serves an extremely undeveloped region in Doro, Upper Nile State, South Sudan. Our multi-national staff provide holistic health care to all patients who enter our doors. The clinic was started by Dr. Bob Grieve in 1940. He and his wife, Claire, sought to serve the local Mabaan population with much needed medical care. They and their team also had a deep desire to introduce the Mabaans to Christ.
The clinic was opened and closed a few times during the long 50 year civil war in Sudan and reopened its doors in 2008. Currently we provide outpatient services including a very busy primary health care clinic, prenatal and maternity services, leprosy treatment, and a nutrition village that serves the needs of severely malnourished children.
Our patient population is vast and diverse. Although the region is home to over 60,000 people from the Mabaan tribe, war in Blue Nile State in the Republic of Sudan sent over 135,000 refugees into Mabaan County. Doro houses the largest refugee camp with over 51,000 refugees. This camp is located just outside our clinic door. There are another 64,000 refugees in three other camps in the county. The majority of these refugees who are from unreached people groups and this is the first time they have the opportunity to hear the Good News.
We purpose not to focus solely on the medical needs of patients, but seek to care for their spiritual and emotional needs as well. Our Chaplaincy program is at the heart of our clinic work. Subsequently, many of our patients are finding deep healing and eternal life through meeting the Great Physician as a result of seeking care at our clinic.
Without your support we cannot continue to provide Christ-centered, quality health care. Would you consider helping us provide physical and spiritual healing in Doro? Your financial gift will help restore people's hope and build the Church.
