Dear Friends and Supporters, The last two years have been a challenge for Kateri Medical Services and our ix partner clinics on many levels. In addition to the ravages of COVID, our clinics have also faced increased poverty, hunger, banditry, kidnapping, violent clashes between cattle herders and farmers, and a rapid increase in the number of homeless internal refugees.
Join us for a fun afternoon of lively music, clam chowder,
fellowship and fun on the front lawn.
Our greatest ongoing need is to raise funds to pay our doctors, nurses, midwives, pharmacists and lab techs. We now employ 67 medical staff at six clinics. We have created the “New Horizons Fund” exclusively for this purpose — to insure continuity in the funding of staff salaries.
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.
The evening started with a meet and greet in the reception hall at the Cathedral in Bloomfield Connecticut.
The Kateri Benefit Dinner only happens every three years. In 2016 we had 175+ people in attendance who reached deep into their hearts and wallets.
It would be a shame to miss this musical performance of the Tapestry Singers of Connecticut at the Kateri Med Benefit Dinner.
We met Bishop Markus in 2016 at Jakaranda retreat center where he was one of the speakers during a clergy conference for the diocese of Kaduna. During this time we had extensive discussions with him about how we might develop a partnership.
