This weekend St. Monica welcomes Fr. Bob Dowd from the University of Notre Dame and Holy Cross Mission Center. He will be sharing the great work taking place at our sister parish Holy Cross, in Dandora, Kenya—specifically at the Our Lady of Visitation Maternity Ward. Since its grand opening two years ago, nearly 600 babies have been born in clean, safe and compassionate maternity conditions. This facility offers essential services to the women and children of the Dandora community, including pre- and post-natal care, childbirth and inpatient maternity care, immunizations, and child welfare services.
Despite the poverty in Nairobi, this state-of-the-art medical center and maternity ward at Holy Cross Parish serves as an oasis of beauty and hope. The facility stands as a beacon of community and comfort, and an antidote to the many challenges of living in Dandora.
We thank you in advance for your support of Visitation Maternity Ward and the women and babies of Dandora.
Special thanks to:
Calvin Onyango and Mercy Wambui from Dandora;
and Vicky Landin, Sam Homsieh and Rami Delos Reyes from St. Monica
