Program Description:

CEML Angola 2017
Our patients have no other access to medical care. While we charge small fees, we will not turn any patient away.

We share our gift of service with Christian men and woman who come here for their surgical residency. They will see cases they would never see in North America. Their medical knowledge will be tested, as they do not have access to the resources of North America hospitals.

We also share the opportunity to serve to Christians world-wide. The financial commitment is high, but when we work together, we accomplish all God has called us to.



Our Mission: 
Restoring Health. Providing Hope through Christ

Our Vision:

As a church-related health care institution we seek to provide medical services for an estimated 50% of Angolans who currently have no alternative coverage.

Dr. Steve Foster, a missionary kid, was challenged to serve the great need in Angola. His vision included a central hospital in southern Angola that would serve as a base for remote clinics which would serve hard to reach regions. Opening in 2006 CEML has served over 57,000 new patients. The 53-bed acute care facility includes a 24 hour emergency ward, 7 consulting rooms and treatment area, administration, lab and x-ray with digital capability, 2 O.R. theaters and a large ward with 8 semi-private beds. Learn more about the future of our hospital, and how it will grow over the coming years.

Volunteer Opportunities
Are you looking for a short-term, hands-on contribution in medical missions? CEML needs you! Be a vital part of CEML’s healthcare initiative in Angola by applying your medical expertise in an international and cross-cultural health context. You will additionally learn the necessary medical practices and methodologies of a third-world context alongside seasoned and passionate doctors and nurses. These volunteer opportunities are short-term service positions for periods ranging from 2 weeks to 2 months.

CEML receives many volunteers each year to meet the many staffing needs of:
  • Providing coverage for staff vacations
  • Train, mentoring and encouraging the national nursing staff in new skills
  • Giving the medical staff new medical perspectives
  • Providing specialized medical services that are outside of CEML’s normal services.

Short-Term Opportunities
Some of the most common ways to serve as short-term medical volunteers include:
  • Two-month rotations for fourth-year medical students
  • One- or two-month rotations for physicians doing their residencies
  • Two-week service opportunities for practicing nurses and physicians.

Non-medical skills are needed as well. These include maintenance skills, computer skills, teaching skills, and many more.

For more information about these opportunities, please contact CEML via the accompanying contact form found HERE.  You will receive a reply promptly via email and then directed to complete a preliminary questionnaire.
