Mission - Who We Are
In 2002 a group from Trinity Episcopal Church in Tariffville, CT visited northern Nigeria at the invitation of Archbishop Josiah Fearon. During that trip, a commitment was made to raise support for staffing a medical clinic in Kateri - a rural area that then had no medical facilities. Today the clinic is a reality: Staffed with two full time doctors, three nurse practitioners, and a lab technician. For thriteen years, the clinic as been open 24 hours a day, seven days a week. We have never missed a day. From 2002 to 2014, we have helped over 120,000 people. Since 2007, we have partnered with FaithCare to conduct a two-week intensive medical mission. During the last week in July and first week in August, we typically help 5,000 to 6,000 people with medical care, including basic health consulting, health and wellness education, family and individual counseling, dental care, eye care and surgery.
