Announcing a Birthing Center in Ghana, West Africa
Rev. Raphael Tawiah, an MBA Graduate Class of 2013 and a priest from the Sunyani Diocesis in Ghana, will celebrate a Mass in Our Lady Seat of Wisdom Chapel announcing a birthing center in Ghana.
Following the Mass there is a reception and presentation in Hancock Center, room 2023. Father Raphael and Christina Vertullo, a faculty member in the School of Computer Science and Math, will discuss the need for improved and safe places of delivery in Sampa, a remote region of Ghana bordering on the Ivory Coast.
Christina Vertullo organized a mission to Ghana in 2011 and traveled with Marist students to Ghana in 2013. It is during this travel that she saw the need to improve the lives of the endearing Ghanaians.
This event will discuss the initiative to provide water to the birthing center under the Marist umbrella of "Water for the World."
Donations will be gladly accepted and can be made by writing a check to Marist College with "Water for the World" on the memo line.
Additional Public Info: Parking is available on the weekends in any Marist parking lot.
Room: Mass is in Our Lady Seat of Wisdom Chapel and the presentation in Hancock Center room 2023
