Dominican Sisters Open new Hospital in Rural Nigeria

The new hospital opened by the Dominican Sisters of St. Catherine of Gusau will provide much-needed healthcare in the rural village of Zuru.

We are blessed to share with you that the Dominican Sisters of St. Catherine of Gusau, one of the major beneficiaries of the Great Bend Mission Bazaar, opened a new hospital in rural Zuru, Nigeria, on November 28, 2019. Sr. Bridget Yabo OP, a Nigerian-trained physician, will serve as Medical Director for the new Haske Dominican Hospital, which will provide much-needed medical care for the people of this remote area.

With the on-going support of the Dominican Sisters of Peace and friends like you, the Haske Dominican Hospital has been under construction for several years. Your prayers and your support for the Great Bend Mission bazaar helped make this wonderful new hospital a reality – thank you!

 

 

 

The hospital includes wards for women, men, and expectant mothers.

 

Hospital beds supplied thanks to your donations took nearly 2 years to get through customs and to the Dominican Sisters.
