Dear Topsy Supporters, 

Thank you for taking the time to enjoy finding out more about the organisation that you choose to support. We are glad to have the chance to show you the results of your amazing support.

Today I would like to share with you a perspective on healing, as it comes from family, friends and caring fieldworkers. I have a real life story for you from one of our patients, (followed by some words from her Topsy fieldworker who continues to help her through these challenging times)

Enjoy this story:

“I would like to thank Topsy Clinic for their help and support:

I became sick some time ago and as time went by I was getting worse and weak.

A neighbour friend who was working at Topsy advised me to go to Topsy Clinic because many people have gotten better and well there. I came to Topsy Clinic early this year, I was very weak, Topsy Health Workers came to visit me to assist and counsel me I just looked at them and it was difficult to talk back.

 

My aunt who stays two houses from mine took me to stay with her and they came to motivate us and advise her when she needed. I was weak, losing weight and had no appetite, they gave me nutritional juice and porridge powder to feed at home, thank God I could tolerate that.

 

My aunt was so patient and did not allow me to stay sleeping during the day. My neighbour friend would come to look after me at my aunt’s house while she was at work, and Topsy Health Workers would come in the day and encourage us saying I will be better/well.

 

I am now very much better can stand for a longer time preparing food, I have moved back to my home slowly but surely -  trying to do for myself, as my brother who stays with me is at work, only coming home on weekends.

 

These words are so true and real, and I am sure you can feel her heartfelt gratitude to everyone who makes this possible – that includes you, our wonderful supporter.

 

And now a few thoughts from her Topsy fieldworker:

“I met this lady when her neighbour friend brought her to Topsy. We have been going to visit her for motivation and counselling. Sometimes when talking to her she was not responding but just stared at us. Last week when I came to the house and after my greeting she responded, oohh I was so emotional and even cried. I was so thankful.”

 

Isn’t it a wonderful difference that these healing hands can make.

Thank you for listening.

Thank you for supporting.

 

Warm Regards
