Report 7:Support 150 TB Patients in Moldova

Galina Touch
Galina Touch

Our patient, Alexandr Ivanov, says “Galina is a ray of light and Speranta Terrei needs to live long enough, as I have, to see another life without TB.” Alexandr contracted tuberculosis while he was resident in an alcoholism treatment clinic. Alcohol and narcotics have marked his young life of 26 years.

He lives in Balti with his mother, who takes care of him. He has difficulty walking and our moderator, Galina Zaporojan, massages his legs and hands after he has taken the TB drugs she brings to his apartment. The caring touch and the conversations with Galina have persuaded Alexandr to continue TB treatment and think of his future. He is close to completing 9 months of therapy for drug-susceptible TB.      

With your donations to our Global Giving project, Galina has attended to 16 TB patients, 9 new cases and 7 relapse cases. Each patient receives her undivided attention, whether he/she has TB, MDR-TB or HIV co-infection. Galina relishes home visits and discussions with patients. For Alexandr, she brings her special touch 5 times per week, staying for 2 hours each time. Photos of Galina and Alexandr are attached. 

Speranta Terrei hopes to continue to live, in Alexandr’s words, and give other patients the extra support which helps them to fight TB.
