Curran Hospital and the Liberian Fellowship

Curran Lutheran Hospital, Liberia, was first built in 1924. With 125 beds and outpatient services, it provides critical health care for a large region and supervision for 23 community health centers and clinics. It also operates a school of nursing.

OSLC has had a partnership with Curran Hospital for more than a decade. Some of the projects we helped with include:

  • Reconstruct the hospital, severely damaged by civil war
  • Purchase equipment –- generator, X-ray machine, patient monitors, protective equipment for staff working with patients exposed to the Ebola virus or other contagious diseases
  • Equip a medical lab
  • Provide safe transportation for nursing students

The Liberian Fellowship, an organization of Liberians and friends of Liberia within Our Saviour’s Lutheran Church, not only raises money for the hospital, but also serves the needs of Liberians in Minneapolis with visits, prayers, and fellowship. It also helps teach the non-Liberian members of the church about Liberia by bringing in speakers, hosting meals with Liberian food, and providing a unique perspective on all issues affecting the church.
