A modern hospital for impoverished Nigeria

Project Leader:

Reverend John Ugobueze

When in the 1980's, Fr. Ugobueze, founder of The Catholic League for the Poor of Nigeria, Inc., was sent to the United States for his graduate education, the desperate medical and mental health needs of his Nigerian parishioners and other nearby families were seared in his mind. Their situation today is more urgent than ever. Health facilities for poor Nigerians are outdated, understaffed or too expensive, and anyone with financial means actually leaves the country to receive care. Fr. Ugobueze is working hard to bring modern health care to them. Parishioners have donated enough seed money to get the project started. Now, leaders from business, law, medicine, psychiatry, and architectural design are donating their time to develop and raise funds to build the Catholic League Medical and Mental Health Hospital, a modern, Western-style hospital in Okoti-Odekpe – an impoverished area of Anambra, Nigeria, that has no hospitals or primary care centers. Please consider supporting this project. A gift of $25 can help continue the work.
