Personal Note from John: “In my home town of Houston, Texas, few people do not have access to quality health care. In Okoti-Odekpe, Nigeria, few people do have access to quality health care. Build a hospital in Houston and you do a good thing. Build one in Okoti-Odekpe and you change a piece of the world in a profound way. I believe this effort will bring hope where there is despair; wellness where there is sickness; opportunities where there are limitations and systemic, sustainable growth where there is a compelling need. What a gift – what a legacy: ‘they built a hospital where there was none’. Please join us in this noble task.”
