Effort will build maternity ward in Nicaragua

Brazosport Facts (Internet / Print) 05/11/06 http://thefacts.com/story.lasso?ewcd=f9685ec7de093bf7 The maternity container will be an addition to a growing makeshift medical complex that serves the 20,000 to 50,000 people living around the village, which is 10 hours outside of Managua, the capital of Nicaragua. Medical missionaries will run the maternity ward until local people are properly trained to take over the duties. A group of 50 student nurses and doctors from the University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston will leave June 3 for a three-week stay in the village. Once the container is in place, it will be ready for use to save countless lives, Genter said. “The entire congregation contributed to this in one way or another,” McRae said. “If this little church can do it other organizations can do this too.”
