SACIM Australia is affiliated to SACIM in Mauritius who identifies the cases and prepares the children to be sent overseas to several countries for major medical care. In Australia the role of SACIM is to establish contact with hospitals and medical personnel, to welcome the children as they arrive, provide foster parenting for the duration of their stays, admit them to hospital, visit and comfort them during the stressful time and also care for them until they can go home. This assistance is kindly provided by volunteers.
