Inter Care supports health units that are faith-based

Inter Care support around 100 health units in sub-Saharan Africa. Most of the health units are mission based and run by the Catholic Diocese. This includes schools, dispensaries and hospitals which all have Nuns in charge.

The faith is so strong in every place that Inter Care visits. The team are always well looked after and the hospitality is overwhelming.

Our patron is Bishop Patrick McKinney, Bishop of Nottingham, Catholic Diocese. Bishop Patrick visited Tanzania in October 2022 with the Inter Care team. He blessed children wherever he was asked and was asked to perform two Masses during the stay. This was at the Catholic Church in Moshi and the school next to the team’s accomodation.
