Medical Clinics provide an opportunity for us to address physical needs while also ministering to the individuals we serve. It is one of our greatest outreach programs. People receive spiritual and biblical counseling. With the help of its partners, Abigail Association operates two clinics nearly full time in the San Salvador region. At both clinics, doctors act as a doctor, nurse and pharmacist.
At the San Jose Villanueva Clinic (SJV)
patients are able to get a variety of services, including medical, dental, gynecological, and counseling all in one location during the clinic's operating hours. The clinic is complete with an ultrasound machine and laboratory* serving most all medical needs. Please keep us in prayer for a technician trained to operate the ultrasound machine.
The Soya Clinic, which opened in September 2018, is complete with (2) medical exam rooms, (1) dental room, a counseling office, laboratory* and food distribution area. The Soya Clinic is open Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays to serve medical needs, Tuesdays for counseling and Thursday for gynecological appointments.
*Lab work includes basic blood panels, cholesterol, triglycerides, any additional blood work needed. There are no other places to get lab work in the area. This has been a great blessing, helping the doctors to be more efficient in their care, to move more quickly and allows more people to hear the gospel.
