PROGRESS. The Egbe community, hospital staff, Nigerian businessmen, donors, volunteers, and missionaries are transforming the complex. Great progress has been made, but more is needed.
A 12,000 square foot main hospital building with patient exam rooms, out-patient department, ICU, laboratory and x-ray has been completed.
Over 350 construction and medical volunteers from the USA and Canada have left their mark at Egbe and many Nigerians have served alongside them.
We now have ten missionary families living in Egbe and more on the way.
A new cell tower provides clear phone and internet access.
New power lines, generators and a water filtration system have been installed.
