Board member Elaine Chagnon and her husband Bob are left on a trip to Nigeria, visiting Gusau and Kaduna state, on Monday October 8th. While in Gusau they attended the official opening and dedication of Graceland Anglican Hospital, on Saturday October 13th. The hospital is a project of our sister organization, Kateri Medical services, which has already built several clinics in Nigeria, these mainly serve the rural poor, who have little access to medical services. Graceland Anglican Hospital is adjacent to Graceland International School. The proximity of the hospital to the school will give our students the opportunity for hands on experience in a medical environment.
On the same day the multi purpose hall (aka Exam Hall) was also officially dedicated.
This day of celebration is the fruit of a lot of planning and hard work by Africa Education Partnership, both by our partners and donors here in the USA and by our dedicated partners in Gusau, whose original vision is now realized.
The Celebrations began at 10 am with many national and local dignitaries in attendance.
A representative of the Emir of Zamfara State cut the ribbon at the hall opening.
