It’s 2 AM, and your child is crying in pain. He seems to have a fever. What do you do?
If you live in the United States, doctors and Emergency Rooms and phone support are right at hand. But if your home is in a rural Nigerian Village, you’ll have to manage on your own, pray and hope, and wait for the next visit from Kateri’s mobile medical clinic.
Kateri Medical Clinic is operated by the Anglican Diocese of Kaduna Nigeria with the support of Trinity Episcopal Church in Tariffville (suburban Hartford), CT in the USA. The Clinic provides local medical services for the region’s 500,000 people. In addition to the 24 hour a day clinic with reliable water and electricity, a mobile medical van provides “bush” medical service two days a week. It currently costs $3,500 - $4,500 a month to operate the Clinic.
Financial support is collected and administered through Trinity Episcopal Church. Every dollar that is donated to the Kateri Medical Clinic goes directly to the purchase of medicine, medical equipment and to pay Nigerian staff salaries. Fund raising and administration is provided by volunteers and Trinity Episcopal Church, as part of its outreach effort.
