Caring is the essence of nursing.
When wealth is lost, nothing is lost When health is lost, something is lost When character is lost, all is lost

Impact of Service Activities on Community
Aruike Specialty Hospital commenced its out-patient clinical services on the 1st of October, 2016. By April 2017, ASH had treated more than 3000 patients with an average of 25 to 30 patients per day. Before the establishment of the Aruike Specialty Hospital, the medical care in the area was inadequate and prohibitively expensive for local people. This led to unacceptable rates of infant and adult mortality as well as high rates of infectious diseases, and other illnesses. The nearest hospital and doctor were nine to fourteen miles away and were unaffordable for most villagers. It is certain that the free medical care provided by the hospital will have a substantial impact on the wellbeing of local people, reducing morbidity and mortality. Providing high-quality health care in a loving environment will also help children struggling with illness to succeed in their studies, and will boost the productivity of all those of working age who are often debilitated by illness. Presently the ASH doctors’ lodge is under construction and will be ready by the end of July 2017. This lodge is located within the hospital premises and will allow doctors to provide around the clock care for their patients. In-patient treatment is scheduled to begin in October 2017.
The 25th of July, 2016 was a remarkable landmark in the history of Ebe people and the surrounding communities. At first, it sounded unbelievable that a hospital of the state of art could be built in such a remote rural area. Even more incredible was the ‘rumor’ that all treatments would be received free of all costs in the hospital.read more

Mother – M’other Self
Mother, You are My other Self
The mystery of our Oneness
My bones are your bones
Your blood runs in my veins
Even the sight in my eyes
These are your art
That I may see
Your beauty in My Heart
Don’t you remember the Presence?
When I was in the womb of your Silence?
Life creating itself from itself
The Full coming from its own fullness
In the dance of Love eternal
You are everything I Am
And even when my body returns to the tomb
My Spirit seeks you still
– Father Ogada
To know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded.
