Important February 2014 Update from Kamwenge
Maranatha Health has suspended its operations in Kamwenge due to the illegal construction of a factory adjacent to our facility. As the battle to have this issue resolved continues, we are using the time to re-imagine and expand the vision of Maranatha Health. To allow us to move forward wisely, we have decided to give ourselves 6 months to settle on a future plan.
We are exploring some very promising and exciting ideas and will develop and research these further before deciding on a course of action. Whatever we do will remain consistent with the original vision and intent of Maranatha Health. While we will not be collecting donations in the interim, we ask that you continue to pray for Maranatha Health and consider supporting a re-invigorated and re-imagined Maranatha Health later in the year.
We hope that this speed hump in the road will only lead to greater opportunities for Maranatha Health to fulfil its mission to love and serve those living in poverty.
