Sisters, Home Visitors of Mary are happy to announce the completion and recent first habitation of the new poultry house on the grounds of the HVM Formation Center in Gwagwalada, Nigeria. This new facility was entirely financed by gifts from generous US supporters! Deep and sincere appreciation goes to all donors. God bless you for your kindness and benevolence! May God harken to your prayers and grant your hearts’ desires.
The Sisters HVM have long operated a small poultry pen in the front yard at the Gwagwalada Formation Center. This new chicken house is much larger. It can house 500 or more birds, ranging from day-old chicks to fully-grown roaster chickens ready for sale during the upcoming Christmas holiday season.
Future efforts and financing might extend production to layer hens and eggs which would go much farther in meeting the protein needs of the Sisters and the local community.
