For the past 6 years, Banyan has led the way in partnering with organizations, teammates, customers, and individuals in the actual rebuilding, re-equipping and re-staffing of Egbe Hospital in a very rural location in SW Nigeria.

In addition to rebuilding 20 houses, a reservoir and installing diesel generators for electricity, a new 12,000 square foot main hospital building was constructed with an operating theater, and many departments were extensively remodeled.

The latest milestone, thanks to several donors, we now have a 15 bed wing just to accommodate children and babies.  The incubators run on batteries that are charged by our generators that only run 6 hours a day enabling the batteries to give 220 volt round the clock.  Until recently, there is no way twins would survive without the special care at Egbe Hospital – 100 miles away from the nearest hospital over treacherous roads.

Mother’s twins saved by new equipment.
