The Kateri Vision is to provide simple decent medical care for poor Nigerians, both in rural and urban settings, who otherwise have no access to medical care. We currently have three year-round clinics and two more in the planning stages. We work in partnership with local churches to build, to staff and to manage clinics on a daily basis. We are currently working with the Anglican Diocese of Kaduna, Gusau and Kafanchan to build and run clinics. We also work in partnership with FaithCare, a faith-based non-profit based in Hartford, Connecticut, to conduct intensive medical missions every summer. Since, 2003, we have helped more than 200,000 people with medical care.
In addition to our year-round clinics, we also sponsor annual Medical Missions for one week in each of our four existing clinics - a total of four weeks per year. During these annual clinics, we enlist the help of volunteers from the United States and Nigeria. Because we have so many volunteers, we are able to serve many more people in these week-long intensive missions.

Twice every week, volunteer doctors and nurses go out to rural village to provide medical care to people who are not able to travel to our regular daily clinics. Each year, we help about 7,000 through these mobile clinics.
