Power outages have also once again punctuated the importance of the completion of the hydro-electric project at the hospital. Dr. Palmer is hopeful that if the funds are available this project could be completed this year.

Please pray for this ongoing work, and if you are able, visit our special project page where you can give to either the oxygen system or the hydroelectric project. Thank you for your ongoing support.
