Teacher Lucy surgery completed yesterday!

Wow! What a difference from difficulties getting surgery performed in Freetown. Pa Foday has reported that the appendicitis Teacher Lucy developed has resulted in surgical removal of the appendix and she is recuperating in the Kabala Hospital. The charge for the surgery is $150 which I am sure we can come up with. This is a much more reasonable fee than what poor Gladys had to endure.

Lucy has sacrificed and been there for Nazareth House providing A-1 education to the students in Kabala for many years now - without pay! Day after Day, month after month, year after year.
