In the Solomon Islands, the church operates one Mission hospital called Atoifi Hospital. It is a 90 bed hospital with a doctor surgeon looking after it. There is a big need for a second doctor at Atoifi hospital. We hope that more hospitals can be added to our list in the near future.
The Seventh Day Adventist Church operates 56 rural health facilities (clinics) across the South Pacific. Most of these clinics are located in isolated rural locations where 90 percent of the people live. Many of them are so dilapidated, do not have access to running water or any form of power or lighting. Water had to be brought in from a distance to help with medical procedures such as deliveries and minor surgical procedures. Procedures done at night are carried out under inadequate lighting usually from a torch or a hurricane lantern. To learn how you can help, visit Adopt-A-Clinic
