About The Mission

Serving in Mission (SIM) Galmi Hospital is owned and operated by SIM, an international mission organisation with more than 1,600 active volunteers serving in more than 60 countries. It is located near the border with Nigeria. During any given time, there are 30-40 people from all over the world living full-time at the Galmi compound and serving there. Galmi Hospital Outpatient Department cares for 300 patients each day, and the Inpatient facility, which comprises of 110 beds on the medical, surgical, obstetrical, and paediatric wards.

 About The Work

Galmi Hospital depends on a strongly committed group of short and long term medical missionaries who become ambassadors of the Great Physician to the country of Niger. LIFT has been sending teams to Galmi Hospital since 2003 and have seen great changes over the years. Our 2017 team embarked on a large Electrical installation of new generators. Our 2018 team will continue to upgrade some of the electrical infrastructure in the hospital, earth some of the housing accommodation and refurbish the Outpatients Department. We will also require someone to prepare meals for the team. This does not need to be a professional chef, just someone to provide good quality meals!
