 St. Margaret comes to the rescue! Minimize

"I was Thirsty and You Gave Me a Drink."

Matthew 25:35!

OUR CLINIC IS NOW OPEN! 






Below are pictures of a much needed Clinic to be opened in a village in Ghana west Africa this year. The first photo is of the building before renovation started the second photo is after renovation started also you can see photo of the container of medical supplies that was sent from New York donated by Mt. Sinai Hospital.

This clinic when opened, will service the immediate area and surrounding communities. Currently the only access the people in the area have is a hospital that's about 35 miles away. The people in these communities have no access to transportation to the hospital and often many sick never make it to the hospital.

This community received water from IHM in 2017 and they are very happy to finally have access to medical help. The clinic will have full time nurse nurses aid and a mid wife on staff. The clinic will also have doctors visiting on a regular basis.  
We are very grateful to our donors who made this possible and to Rose Day who made the connection to Mt Sinai hospital for the medical equiptment and supplies

We will keep you informed when it opens and send additional pictures! Click on the link below to view the moment and excitement the day we received the supplies from the USA.



















The Village of Atikpui in Ghana

The Villagers of Atikpui in Ghana, Africa, previously got their water from the dirty stream below. There are over 3,000 villagers that depended on this stream, and many of them suffered illnesses from drinking, washing and cooking with the water.

IHM is proud to announce that the students and CCD program of St. Margaret School in Middle Village, New York, the students of St. Adalbert's School in Elmhurst, New York, and many private donors, raised funds for a bore hole in this village.

We have successfully drilled a bore hole and have mechanized it. It now delivers clean drinking water to Atikpui and the surrounding villages. We installed 5 water stations, at the school and church areas and on both sides of the village for easy access. Water tanks will hold 20,000 gallons of water and deliver over 40,000 gallons per day to the residents of all the villages in the area.

We are grateful to all of our donors, who made this possible. Their names are engraved on plaques that were affixed to the main pumping and water station, and on the hearts of all who fetch water there each day.

Thank you, Fr. Francis Perry Azah, for all of your great help and direction on this project.

 Nyagbo Water Project Minimize

The village of Nyagbo is located in the Volta region of Ghana and has a population of approximately 2,000. This water project was especially difficult because the community is located about 2 miles up a mountain. The pictures below show where the current water source is located. When the dry season comes there is no water at all in the area and the community must search great distances for water.

These villagers wait for the water to replenish at this dirty water hole.These villagers wait for the water to replenish at this dirty water hole.These villagers wait for the water to replenish at this dirty water hole.

 New School Classroom Block for Holy Cross Primary school Minimize

 
We are pleased to announce that we have completed a classroom block for the Holy Cross Primary School in Sogakope, Ghana. This classroom block will accommodate the 2nd and 3rd grade classrooms. The cost of building this school block was $7,500 and it took 3 weeks to complete.

Before the construction of these classrooms children had to be turned away, so we thank all of our supporters who made this possible!

St Josephs Primary School Opens in Ave Ando Avega

In 2014 we completed a water project in the Ave Ando/Avega area of Ghana west Africa. The community was very happy as you can see from some of the pictures posted on the projects/water page. However they were in desperate need of a school as the nearest primary school was about 6 miles away and difficult to get to as there are no roads. We were able to help them and build  the school under the direction of Fr. Victor and the help from the community which did most of the labor. Even the bricks were made by hand by the community.

Because of the great generosity of our donors this would not have been possible and we thank them as well as the community greatly!
