MEDICAL FUND NEWS
We are so thankful to the Lord for all of you who contribute to the Widows, the Widows' Farm and especially the medical fund through prayers and finances. You have made it possible to provide medical treatment for several widows recently; but especially this past few weeks.
If it weren't for the medical fund these ladies and others we treated would almost certainly have had no diagnosis, no medicine, no treatment, and certainly never get to a doctor or hospital.
Currently there have been many health challenges in the village (Kadawa); especially malaria and bronchitis/pneumonia are on the rise and our widows have been hit hard.
Unfortunately, even with our help, we weren't able to save them all. Our Penina Sirah was buried on Saturday (Aug.10)
Following are widows, a young girl and one male who have been helped (in more than one case life-saving help) by the medical fund you have provided:
-Patricia Akendo is still down, but recovering. (lab tests,
X-rays, and treatment)
-Mathilda Congo was diagnosed with heart failure on
Thursday (Aug. 8) and is in delicate condition. (blood tests
for HB, diabetes, malaria; a lumbar spine X-ray. We have
authorized an immediate EKG and ECHO to confirm the
extent of her condition. SHE IS A DESTITUTE WIDOW
WITH 6 ORPHANS TO CARE FOR ON HER OWN .
-Mama Josephine (consultation, kidney and heart tests,
-Fred Ago (bronchitis tests and drugs)
TWO HOUSES BUILT IN JULY
In addition we were able to build TWO houses in July!
New houses are authorized by a committee of pastors who have determined that the houses they replace are uninhabitable.
BLESS YOU ALL! THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!
