WHO WE ARE
Since the early 1990s, SIM and its partners have actively responded to issues of HIV and AIDS through collaborative health and development projects in over 14 countries. This effort was originally under the umbrella of ‘HOPE for AIDS’ and focused on bringing HOPE through key ministry areas of Home-based care, Orphan care, Prevention and Enabling the community.
In 2016, as we reflected on 20+ years, we saw that our efforts – though initially focused on helping people to die well – were now about giving life. And so our name was changed to Hope for Life!
