The future Medical Centre is another part of Sofia Baptist Church’s vision. Dr. Antoaneta Todorova (known as Toni) is a redoubtable lady who has already established a medical centre elsewhere and has become known for her robust, no-nonsense medical care of the children on the Church’s summer camps in the mountains.
Together with a medical professor and two other medical specialists, Toany is working out what services are most needed by vulnerable folk who live near the Centre, what can be fitted into the available space, and how to make it pay so that the poorest can be treated free. Options include dental, contraception and sexual health services, and medical care for the homeless. Discussions inevitably widen into the need for associated services such as nutrition, parenting, debt-management, legal advice and housing which the Centre also hopes to develop.
