Pray for Kurji Holy Family Hospital in India

Kurji Holy Family Hospital, one of the oldest hospitals in Patna, North India, was established in 1939 by MMS.  It is now jointly managed by MMS and Sisters of Charity of Nazareth and has 300 beds, which have been increasingly filled with Covid-19 patients.  Our Sisters there are reporting significant challenges in providing quality care; they are currently setting up a PSA oxygen plant which will take 6-8 weeks to be completed. In addition, the hospital is struggling to maintain full staffing due to the pandemic.  Sister Juliana D’Cunha shares: “Our current response to Covid-19 remains grossly inadequate in view of the massive need around us in Patna and rest of Bihar state.”  Please continue to hold India in your prayers.
