At the end of last year we received food from the Government to distributed to malnourished patients. A month ago a delegation from Medecin Sans Frontiere (MSF) France came to see how we'd used the food aid at the hospital and the local community as well as to examine the patients at Katoka Hospital.
They stayed overnight and were very impressed with our hospital kitchen, the soya milk, beans, eggs, mogoes and banana distribution, providing much needed nutrients and vitimins to help our patients on the road to full health.
Last week we had a message from Dilolo (our nearest town on the border with Angola, approximately 40 kilometres away) asking us to come and collect more food for the nutrition programme. Unfortunatley due to heavy rain and the bad state of the road we were unable to drive to collect the food aid. Thankfully some of the hospital staff were able to get through to Dilolo on motorbikes and returned with a sack of fish, 150 tins of sardines and eggs. Amazingly they weren't broken despite the state of the roads!
We thankyou so much for all your support which enables us to continue to support the needy population in our area with practical health care and spiritual support.
