Petit Maison de Soulagement de la Souffrance

The AssociationA Voice for Padre Pio in 2014 decided to implement a series of fundraising initiatives to achieve a great humanitarian project: to give relief to the suffering people in body and spirit, and this responds to the will of Padre Pio .

The project involves the construction of a large hospital, the Hospital of the Poor, where the poor will be the master; this will be the first hospital technologically advanced throughout the Ivory Coast, where you can undergo radiation and chemotherapy, today a mirage in this country.

The realization of the Hospital of Padre Pio will be an arduous and difficult job, but with the help of Providence we are certain that the miracle will repeat itself once again.

The hospital, just like in San Giovanni Rotondo, will be built on a hill at the foot of the shrine of Notre Dame de la Guarde Bonoua, Ivory Coast, and will be completely at the service of women, children, elderly and sick people, regardless of sex , race, religion. Here everyone will find satisfied their right to receive aid and medical care.

Petit Maison de Soulagement de la Souffrance

To keep the Hospital open for ever, even now, we began to acquire a substantial number of plantations that, over the years, will allow us to have fixed and guaranteed revenue to be allocated to the survival of the Hospital Opera.

Our idea is to buy 150/200 hectares of land and put them into production, so that there are continuous and guaranteed revenue locally. For example, a rubber plantation has a duration of about 30 years of production, a plantation of oil palm about 40 years. For the management of this part of the project of self-financing, we signed a partnership with a cooperative of local farmers who will give us the necessary support for the proper management of the plantations.

On the same ground it can grow, at the same time, local vegetables and start small flocks of chickens, quail, rabbits and guinea fowl, which will allow us to ensure high quality food to patients (as in Italy in the founder structure) and also sell at the local market.

This type of activity will allow us to make self-sufficient the Hospital which will, always, continue to provide care to the sick and especially to those who can not afford to pay their medical care. So we guarantee a continuity to the work, unlike many structures created in Africa for lack of funds are intended to be shut down.

"In the sick there is Jesus, and in the poor sick there is Jesus twice" Padre Pio.
