Medical Mission Sisters in the UK
Healing Presence at the Heart of a Wounded World
New Pharmacy in Techiman, Ghana, West Africa from Vivian Achebe
We live in an area that does not have enough pharmacies to serve the needs of the people. We wanted to ease the pain involved in going far distances in search of drugs. The pharmacy will not only serve as a mission, but also a means of sustainability.
On April 10th 2014, the pharmacy was opened. We gave it the name: ‘Medimis Pharmacy’ (Medical Mission Sisters). The occasion was graced by His Lordship, Dominic Yeboah Nyarko, the Bishop of Techiman. Almost all the sisters in the district were present together with our co-wokers, parishioners and neighbours. The people were very happy with the project, for according to them, it is a healing presence in their midst.
