It has been a busy few months at Katoka Hospital. The heavy rains continued well into May making travel and transport of medcines and patients a real challenge. There is a concern about increasing cases of malnutrition in children. This is thought to be partly due to the closure of the border with Angola due to covid-19. This has prevented the transport of protein rich fish and chicken from Angola which the local population rely on. The hospital has recently been able to support Daniella, a baby with a tumour to travel to Lusaka the captial of Zambia with her parents for a life saving operation. The operation went well and Mary asks people to pray that this baby will make a full recovery. Mary reports that it has been sad to see the numbers of children being brought to hospital due to hunger and starvation. Mary returned to the UK in May to see family and have her covid-19 vaccines. She plans to return to Katoka at the end of July.
