as preparations continue to formally open the Kudvumisa Clinic, the
nurses are encountering advanced medical conditions that require
emergency care. Recently, as we were winding up a Monday morning staff
meeting, a lady burst in, crying hysterically for help.
She was carrying a motionless baby in her arms.
She thought the baby was dead. The nurses ran from the room guiding the lady and baby back to the nurses room. On assessment, the nurses concluded that the baby had had a seizure resulting from a high fever. After the mother had calmed down, she expressed the reason for her agony: the baby belonged to her partner’s girlfriend who was admitted at a distant regional hospital.
Febrile seizures or fits are common among children and associated with a high body temperature and possible infection. Given the increase in climate conditions, we also anticipate an increase in illnesses associated with high body temperatures such as fits, heat stroke, heat rash and more. Hence the need for the clinic in this area. (This story was contributed by Lomanono Ngidie, a Kudvumisa Nurse)
nurses are the most compassionate caring nurses that I know! I was so
amazed and proud at the reaction of our nurses as this incident unfolded
in front of me! These girls love the Lord and love people well! They
not only cared for the physical needs of the baby but they cared for the
emotional and spiritual needs of the woman!
Please help us with your donations to continue this extremely important project. We need assistance with the salaries of the three nurses that we have on staff. Jessie our Nurse Coordinator who is a missionary leads them so well! Teresa Rehmeyer, Medical Director
The medical outreach and economic development projects of Kudvumisa impact real people’s lives in significant and meaningful ways.
