In August 2016, Rev. Tom Furrer, President and Executive Director of Kateri Medical Services traveled to Kafanchan to meet with Bishop Markus Dogo and his wife Nana. They have been discussing the possibility of a new clinic here for the past for years, but now it seems that the time is right. Both Bishop Markus and Nana are energetic and zealous to bring the love of God to bear on real life struggles and problems of the people in Kafanchan Diocese.
Because of religious riots, the diocese has about 2,000 widows. Nana is developing womens’ training center to equip women to set up small businesses to support themselves and their children. They are also developing housing for widows and orphans. Both Bishop Markus and Nana were orphaned when they were young children. They know the pain and needs of those who have been left behind and they are committed to sharing the love of Jesus with the least, the last and the lost.
