The SAMA Benevolent Fund
The South African Medical Association (“SAMA”) as we know it today was formally constituted on 21 May 1998 as a unification of a variety of doctors groups that had represented a diversity of interests. Today, SAMA is a non-statutory, professional association for public and private sector medical practitioners. It functions as a non-profit company registered in terms of the Companies Act as well as a Public Sector registered in terms of the Labour Relations Act. SAMA is a voluntary membership association, existing to serve the best interests and needs of its members in any and all healthcare-related matters.
The SAMA Benevolent Fund assists destitute doctors and the families of these doctors financially. Currently 31 families receive support from The SAMA Benevolent fund. This worthy cause annually pays out more than a million rand in grants to beneficiaries.
