New Dispensary Construction Underway by our Nigerian Missionaries
Fr. Peter Morkah, M.SS.CC., Delegate of our Nigerian Community has confirmed that construction is well underway on a new dispensary to serve the needs of the residents of the area close to our Formation House in Owerri. For the first time, villagers will be able to avail themselves and their families of basic medical needs on a daily basis. Planned to serve at least 30-40 patients a day, the dispensary will be staffed by volunteer medical personnel. Funding has come via a grant from an American family foundation and through the generosity of donors in the USA and Nigeria. The Dispensary is projected to be completed by October 2014.
