Operation Classroom—It’s Done!
By Operation Classroom, Inc.
The new 42 bed MCH Unit (Maternal & Child Health) at the Kissy United Methodis tHospital in Sierra Leone is done! Handover from thecontractor occurred Thursday, August 1, 2013. The hospital is planning to open in September. With the completion of the MCH Unit, Kissy United Methodist Hospital completes the journey from a poorly staffed and equipped neighborhood clinic into the preeminent pediatric, gynecological, and obstetric hospital in all of West Africa. This has largely happened thanks to the vision of Dr. Dennis Marke, the medical director of Kissy UMH since 1994, and the many, many people here in Indiana (and elsewhere) who have been part of this project. We are deeply grateful for all who have given their support to Kissy—and look forward to the incredible impact that Kissy continues to have on the health of the people (and particularly the women and children) of Sierra Leone. Thanks be to God.
