The Hospital

The Hospital

Centro Evangélico de Medicina do Lubango

After 30 years of civil war, the national health care system had been dramatically weakened. The people were in need of medical care and some needed nothing short of a miracle.

Dr. Steve Foster took up the challenge to re-engage the Angolan Church in serving through healthcare. He led the plans for a private, mission hospital.

A Canadian surgeon raised in Africa by missionary parents, Dr. Foster has served over 35 years in medical ministries throughout Angola. Dr. Foster’s vision was to establish a stable, central hospital in southern Angola as a base to support a series of remote clinics in hard to reach areas. In 2006, the Centro Evangélico de Medicina do Lubango opened its doors as a key contributor to improving life in Angola through public health, agriculture and medical care.
