#UACU 834968, 11/13/12. One out of every four black Africans is from Nigeria. This huge and diverse country of 120 million maintains a steady political environment by its tolerance and bustling economy.
Sylvester Okere of Strategic Groups in Annapolis, Maryland asked Mission Relief to develop a container for the Lifeline Missionary hospital in the IMOState of Nigeria. There is a hospital, church and school under the direction of Bishop Maxwell C. Korie in Owerri. We were able to send cribs, instruments, surgical materials, new clothing, furnishings, lockers, and school desks from the Mary Katherine Drexel Shrine to this African community and hospital.
