The Southern Africa Medical Aid Fund (SAMAF) was an anti-apartheid organization. SAMAF provided medical supplies to the African National Congress (ANC) and SWAPO clinics in Zambia.  SAMAF provided money to Sisters of Mercy in South Africa for their work in the Winterveldt squatter camp in South Africa.
