IHM SISTERS OPENS A CONGREGATIONAL PHARMACY

The IHM Sisters officially opened a Congregational Pharmacy and Health Shop at IHM Hospital premises, Nkpor, Anambra State on August 13, 2016.

Bearing in mind the welfare of the sick and to eradicate the concern for good drugs, the Congregation established the Health Facility to ensure that authentic and standard drugs are administered and distributed.  Qualified Sister Pharmacists will manage it.

Most Rev. Denis Isizoh, the Auxiliary Bishop of Onitsha Archdiocese, in approval for the pharmacy said; “The Immaculate Heart Sisters have built their Pharmacy to provide for the community and society, authentic drugs and food supplements to assist in health.”  Congratulations for this initiative to promote good health, he added.

As the first of its kind around the area, the celebration attracted a number of medical personnel both Religious and State.  Bishop Isizoh concelebrated with Msgr. Hypolite Adigwe, Fr. Francis Ezumezu, the Cathedral Administrator, and about 10 other priests. 

Dr. Nathan Ojaekwu represented the Anambra State Commissioner for Health.  He thanked the IHM Sisters because they are in line with the intention of the Government.  He said that the Health Sector of Anambra State is ready to partner with them to ensure good health services.

A cream of friends and well wishers witnessed the celebration.  Engr. Gab Okafor, the National President of IHM Associate Members and wife, with other members were present.  Two Pharmaceutical Companies – Afro Farmers and SKG - were there to market their products.

Mother Mary Claude Oguh, the Superior General, thanked all and said that the Pharmacy is dedicated to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.  She echoed the reason for the Facility stressing that it is for humanitarian endeavours.  Quoting Archbishop Charles Heerey, the Founder of IHM Congregation, she said, “Charity is the ruling virtue of all Health Facilities.  Hospitals are institutions of charity.”  She said that the Pharmacy will supply to Hospitals and other Health Facilities.

Sr. Mary Doris Frances Ginigaeme, one of the Sister Pharmacists and Director of the Pharmacy appreciated all present for their support.

The Block Rosary children entertained the guests with songs and dance.  The celebration was truly a successful one.

The Pharmacy offers some free services which include; Free Blood Check, Weight Management, Free Medicine Information.  They also have in store Dietary Supplements, Toiletries and Confectioneries.  They are open Monday to Saturday from 8am to 8pm.  Drugs are purchased at affordable prices and can be delivered to your home.
