Community Healthcare Development

Health funds for the underprivileged is a health care benefits for Nigeria, Sierra Leone, Ghana and Kenyan beneficiaries, religious sisters, children with special needs, elderly, workers, people with disability and people with cancer. To offer Screening and monitoring to people who are identified with this syndrome.

The sisters of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, Mother of Christ create atmosphere of empathy for the sick and infirm and have always seeks opportunity to help patients who comes to our hospital but cannot pay for their treatments by giving free medical treatment to them. Aside from the medical program, our hospital also spends a great premium to other formation programs to address their holistic development. Awareness programs to communities and institutions such as spiritual recollections, self-awareness development programs and other extra-curricular activities are quite costly.

This community health program would be of great help to ease the suffering of people and eradicate poverty as well as create a more well being for people.

  • Surgical Missions
  • Medical Missions (HIV/AIDS)
  • Psychological /Counseling services for the Delinquent

To meet the needs of the modern times, we commit ourselves to giving holistic services to our patients, students and clients in every field of our apostolate by ensuring efficiency of services. This we maintain through offering regular updates and training opportunities for personal and professional developments to our sisters, workers and students. We undertake these through regular seminars, workshops, conferences and in-services trainings of different kinds. We also introduce them to making good use of modern technologies for greater effectiveness. But most of the times we lack adequate resources and all that is required especially proper instruments like computers, overhead projectors and other modern technological devices for more effective teaching.
