In Partnership With: Hopitaly Vaovao Mahafaly
Proposed Project Dates
1st to 15th May 2021
About The Mission
The work of Hopitaly Vaovao Mahafaly (or Good News Hospital) in Mandritsara in the North of Madagascar is a rural mission hospital providing the sole surgical service for a population of 250,000 people. They carry out about 1400 operations each year. Some patients live locally while others travel 200km or further to get treatment. It is the best hospital in the area and cares for an area about half the size of Wales. The mission statement of the hospital, in partnership with the Bible Baptist Churches, is to glorify God by proclaiming the Good News of salvation through Jesus Christ, teaching the Bible and caring for those in need as Jesus did. Louise Little and Cathy Armstrong are presently serving full time as nurses with LIFT at HVM.
About The Work
In 2020 LIFT sent a team of three people, pre Covid-19, to prepare designs, locate services, take earth samples and produce construction and engineering drawings to build a new Theatre block. The Theatre block is now up to roof level and we hope to send a team to fit the roof and install electrical and plumbing services as well as manufacture and install windows and doors.
Joiners, Electricians, Plumbers, Plasterers, Window installers, Metal-Workers, and Handy Enthusiasts
