Simien Mountain Mobile Medical Service is a small family run charity and we depend upon your donations to continue our work; each month we must cover the costs of medications, equipment and salaries. Furthermore, donations help to cover the tuition fees for our midwifery students, in the coming year three more of our students will qualify and begin working in the community providing much needed care to mothers as they carry, deliver and care for their children.

Below are some of the ways your money will be spent, even a small donation can save a life;
