We take great care to spend your donations wisely to have a maximum impact on the people
Margret David grew up next door to Kateri Medical Clinic. During her teen years, she volunteered at our annual medical missions.
As we have grown, our staff salary expenses have increased. Our greatest ongoing need is a steady stream of donations to support our staff salaries.
We rely on your generous individual donations for most of our support.

The Arthur and Esther Bradley Memorial Anglican Hospital in Gidan Waya
Dear friends and supporters,
I want to thank you all for your generous and steadfast support over this very challenging year. Because of the world-wide COVID-19 pandemic, we have not been able to conduct our annual medical outreach missions. Nor have we been able to travel to Nigeria to consult with our partners. And the lockdowns in Nigeria have exacted a terrible toll on the economy and especially on the very poor at the bottom of the economic scale.
In April of 2018, we opened our third clinic The Arthur and Esther Bradley Memorial Anglican Hospital in Gidan Waya in the Diocese of Kafanchan, Nigeria. Since that time, the patient demand has grown and, at peak periods, there is not enough bed space for all of the patients.
We are very grateful for two grants from SAMS (Society of Anglican Missionaries and Senders) based in Abridge, Pennsylvania. This year, they gave two generous grants.
Thanks to a very generous donor, Kateri Medical Services has received a significant gift to help us strengthen the “human capital” of our clinic staff members.
