Doctors For Life International (DFL) is a non-profit company that was founded and established in South Africa in 1991. The organization began in response to an increasing need for intervention to preserve Judaeo-Christian ethics and sound science within the medical profession and, in particular, protect the sanctity of life from fertilization until natural death.
Africa as a whole has the highest mortality rates compared to other continents worldwide. In particular, people living in rural and remote areas suffer most. Access to healthcare facilities is difficult and may take several days.
The harsh reality of this suffering motivated Doctors For Life to develop a medical aid program known as Aid to Africa. Aid to Africa was established in 2001 with the purpose of providing free medical relief to resource-limited countries in Sub-Saharan Africa. This is achieved in the form of medical outreaches and establishment of permanent clinics.
