On Feb. 9 and 10 His Grace SILVESTER, Bishop of Jinja and Eastern Uganda, blessed and opened two health facilities in his diocese that were supported with OCMC grants. His Grace was joined at the blessing and opening of the St. Spyridon Medical Center in Namutumba and the pharmacy in Jinja City, by the Diocese’s Vicar General Fr Chrysostom Koolya and members of the Diocese Health Department.

His Grace stated, “We greatly thank our mission associates the Orthodox Christian Mission Center (OCMC), who financially supported us in establishing the two medical centers.” In speaking to the health workers of the two establishments, His Grace urged them “…to always add prayers to their operations because our Lord and God is the Physician of our souls and bodies who cures all infirmities of the flesh.” The support of these two health facilities is part of the more than $1 million that OCMC has distributed in grants to assist local churches throughout the world over the past year.
