Moses is a 2 week old baby who was abandoned on the banks of the river running through Murambinda township. Local people brought him to Murambinda Mission Hospital. Here the hospital nourished him, kept him warm, provided him with clothes, and treated the eye infection he was suffering from. The staff took it in turns to hold Moses and show him the love and care he deserves, with one of the nurses volunteering to be Moses’ godfather. Without Murambinda Mission Hospital it is likely that Moses would have been left by the river to die. Following his recovery the hospital took care of Moses until suitable care was arranged for him.
Zach is a 35 year old man who fractured his femur. He lives in a village 60km away from Murambinda Mission Hospital. It is the nearest hospital to him that can manage his fracture. He normally works as a water supply operator but is currently unable to work due to his injury. He is worried as he is married with 5 children, he pays school fees for 4 of them (all schools are fee paying). Zach needs to get back to work as soon as possible in order to support his family. Zach is very happy with the care he is receiving at Murambinda Mission Hospital but his recovery has been delayed due to the shortage of traction kits and he is required to purchase his own crutches when he is discharged.
Marshall is an 8 year old boy with epilepsy. He lives in a very rural area with his widowed mother, Confidence, and 5 siblings. The family are sustained on a small plot of land where they grow vegetables to eat and sell. During the cold winter nights, Confidence lights a fire in the centre of their one roomed, cylindrical shaped and thatched roof house. The whole family sleep around the burning embers. Tragically, Marshall had a seizure one night and fell into the fire sustaining deep burns to his left foot and leg. Marshall was admitted to the Childrens’ Ward at Murambinda Mission Hospital where he was immediately given fluids to prevent dehydration and had the burns cleaned and bandaged to prevent infection. For the next 6 weeks Marshall had dressings changed frequently and wounds scrapped and cleaned to ensure a healthy healing process. Confidence is extremely thankful and appreciative for the care her son has received at Murambinda Mission Hospital. The problem of cold winter nights and lack of fire safety makes Marshall’s case a very common presentation to come through the doors of Murambinda Mission Hospital.
