During the past two and a half years, we have not been able to hold our annual intensive medical missions at our full-time clinics. First came the Covid epidemic and then security concerns arising from an increase in kidnapping, banditry, ethnic/ religious/political tensions and violence. All of our clinics in the north of Nigeria have become “no go” areas for our large-scale outreach efforts that have been so effective and fruitful in the past.
This story illustrates the terrible choices that poor people are forced to make regarding healthcare. These are the people Kateri Medical Services’ partner clinics serve. People who cannot afford lifesaving medical care. In many cases, they simply die quietly and painfully at home. These are the people whose lives are saved by your generous donations.
