REFLECTIONS OF INDIA - HELEN ROSE SCHOOL OF NURSING
January 22, 2007 - on the campus of UCH in Umri, Maharashtra, India
REACHING OUT. The nurses training program on the campus of Umri Christian Hospital is robustly developing based on the vision of its founders--an outgoing husband and wife nurse team. Amirson and Esther Jacob recruit young women who do not have the means to attend other nursing schools. In particular, they reach out to brides of arranged marriages who have been abandoned by their husbands and who are at risk of suicide.
WINNING AWARDS. Named for a Free Methodist missionary, the Helen Rose School of Nursing is certified by the government and has received awards for its outreach and excellence. However, it is essential for the continued certification and development of Helen Rose School of Nursing that Umri Christian Hospital be replaced and its equipment upgraded. Want to help?
