Gratitude from Hope House

by Sr. Elsa

July was a very busy month with house full of patients .Three of the clients were suffering from the third stage of Cancer and came with very serious conditions, all three of them died in RFM hospital after being referred. The four kids of Client S were discharged and went back home well improved in their condition and to continue with the ARVs. They had gained weight and were much improved.

T, 15 years, a defaulter is still battling for his life, he had been sent home and lost a lot of weight. M.K 33 years, another defaulter, has made a big improvement from the 23rd of July, now he is able to talk, eat and walk, we pray that he will be able to return back to his work. His girlfriend is taking care of him very well. Mrs. N 34 years came with her TB drugs and ARVs and was blind. The good balanced diet, physiotherapy and tender loving care promoted a speedy recovery. Her husband a soldier is also on ARVs.

A work shop on Physical disability was organised, clients, minders and family members participated in the workshop, it was educative and informative. The demonstrations were very educative.

The visit of Bishop Martin Su from the Diocese of Taichung, Taiwan, our bishop José of Manzini was indeed a great encouragement for us as we take care of the terminally ill clients, their inspiring message encouraged us to do better. Khanyisile School, Clover Matsapha & Ruchi wholesalers donated food items and the clients, minders and staff enjoyed them, it also contributed to a speedy recovery to our clients. We thank all those who support us in all our needs, may the good God bless and reward them.
