At the end of April, Hope & Healing Africa hosted an event, A Night of Hope, to honor one of our founding members, fundraise, and announce our newest focus. If you were unable to attend, here is a glimpse at what happened!
Recognition of Dr. Randy Claassen
Dr. Claassen first visited Nhaloi Hospital in the summer of 2012 with a group of professionals and returned with a growing desire to serve in Mozambique. He and his family helped support Nhaloi Hospital’s staff and was instrumental in the founding of Hope & Healing Africa. At A Night of Hope our president was able to honor Randy and his wife Janice for their commitment.
Music by Steve Rue and McPherson College Students
Throughout dinner and a silent auction guests were able to enjoy music by artists Steve Rue and Madison Fitzmier, as well as several pieces by a group of students from McPherson College.
Saving Grace Maternity Project
At the event, Hope & Healing Africa announced the launch of an initiative to raise funds for the renovation of the maternity wing at Nhaloi Hospital.
Our goal is to bring in 100 donors who are able to each give $200.
And finally, a huge thank you to everyone who helped organize the event and to those attended! We couldn’t have done it without you!
*Edit: We are continuing to raise funds for Saving Grace over the next few months. Watch closely for a tour of the maternity wing and update from our current team on the ground during July.
