Scovia Modong, a 1 year old female, residence of Kilaji (appx 10km away from the clinic) was rushed in the clinic late evening with; high grade fever, convulsions, persistent dry cough, stridor, vomiting everything and passing loose watery stools for 2 weeks.
Ms. Jeska, Scovia’s mother said while tears rolling on her eyes “I took this child to almost all the nearby health facilities in Mijale including those in the IDPs but noticed no improvement.”
So, the Cress clinic became the only hope for her child since it’s the only clinic with a microscope in the whole of Kerwa sub-county – meaning excellent service delivery.
Indeed, Scovia’s condition became worse after arrival but we had to detain them in the clinic because Jeska cannot afford any referral expenses since she lost her husband in the war and lack any external support.
Following laboratory investigations Scovia was diagnosed with complicated malaria, severe pneumonia and Amoebiasis – they were detained in the clinic for five days.
On full recovery, Ms. Jeska, Scovia’s mother was very excited to see her baby girl healthy again and she gave a HUGE words of THANK YOU for the existence of the Cress clinic here in Mijale – adding that without the excellent services offered by the clinic staff, she would have lost her baby because of complicated malaria and severe pneumonia just the same way she lost her first born.
Mr Sokiri Isaac Taban is a focal person praying in the Baptist Church of Mijale who worked hard to find the address of the CEO of CRESS UK on Facebook and emailed her to give a HUGE THANK YOU for the establishment of Jehovah Rapha clinic in Mijale that saves thousands of lives.
Mr Isaac arrived in the clinic with the history of severe colicky abdominal pain, severe headaches (frontal) and low grade fever. He attempted to seek for help in the nearby clinics and health centres with no improvement. After being tested in the clinic and diagnosed with Schistosomiasis and Typhoid fever, and initiated on appropriate treatment. The following morning, he came singing the name of the clinic because of the miracles that happened to him – Adding without this clinic,he would have lost his life or travelled a long distance for appropriate medication.
Not just for himself but also his wife and their little baby girl. They both survived critical conditions because of the clinic – so he is very glad to give a testimony about the clinic. However, there are very many patients/clients who always give a good testimonies about the clinic which is our only source of advertisement.
