|Wasaidizi health workers in DRC|
Josephine Kipampe, the Wasaidizi health worker supervisor, recently reported on 3 people who received their assistance.
Kabwe Mwansa, an 85-year-old woman, was abandoned by her family because they suspected her of being a witch. She became very ill so the Wasaidizi took her to the hospital and acquired the needed treatment.
In the village of Mwaba, a 26 year-old woman. Marie Ilunga, went into labor on the path when she was walking back from her farm. She was with her husband who ran to the center to call Wasaidizi Kinunka to help his wife. Kinunka took a delivery kit and ran fast to help the woman deliver the baby on the path. Kinunka then took the mother and the baby to the health center for care.
In the village of Kiba, Chama Chola treated a 45-year-old man, Mulenda John, who was severely burned from hot water. Chama treated him with guava leaf antiseptic for 10 days and then treated him with triple antibiotic ointment. The wound is now drying and healed. His wife sends great thanks to HealthEd Connect for providing the ointment.
