Friends of Sacred Heart and St Margaret's welcomes you

The Friends of Sacred Heart was established in December 2005. It is part of what the parish does to engage with the wider community. On its behalf a group of parishioners meets regularly to organise fundraising and the allocation of funding to overseas projects.

Friends of Sacred Heart targets projects that are not supported by major charities. They are usually suggested by members of the parish because of a personal link, recommendation or knowledge of what they do.


Friends of Sacred Heart uses a formal application form to consider potential projects. Projects provide written reports and photos to show how the funding benefits the people receiving the service or provision. There are no administration costs: 100% of the money goes to the projects.

Dear Sir/Ma,


We received with joy and thanksgiving to God your donation of 2,100 Pounds sometimes in September 2018. We sincerely appreciate your kind gesture and benevolence. Our Lady of Apostles' Hospital Jos is Faith-Based and non-profit in nature and operates a fee for service arrangement.This donation has gone a long way in cushioning the stress on our already overstretched wheelchairs as well as providing comfort to our patients who are currently enjoying them. Below is a breakdown of how the money was expended.


  1. Bank charges were deducted from the amount sent to the tune of 100 Pounds.
  2. . The remaining 2,000 Pounds was used to purchase 20 wheel chairs at the cost of 1,695 Pounds.
  3. 305 Pounds is the excess remaining from the amount.


Purchase of the wheel chairs was delayed due to activities marking the end of the year alongside quality of the initial supply which was poor as against the ones requested for.


We humbly request if we may use the balance of 305 Pounds to purchase a hematocrit machine aid in our laboratory investigations.


Thank you and God bless.


Sr. Florence Dunkong, OLF
