Medical Ministry Needs

February is one of the months that NWHCM missionaries can fundraise for their own personal ministries. 🙂

One of the ministries that is near and dear to my heart is our medical ministry.

Last year we expanded our medical space by adding a 40×60 building next to our current clinic. We then renovated our whole medical facility so that we could provide better & more efficient care for our patients. **Here’s a link to a previous blog: Clinic Expansion

 

The older building now holds: a play-therapy room,  a reception/charting room, a waiting area, and a consultation room large enough for multiple patients to be seen at the same time.

The newer building holds: our pharmacy, laboratory, medical storage, a nurse’s station, and an area to keep patients overnight.

 

We were able to fundraise for the majority of this project last year. We were able to construct the entire building. We also plastered the insides of the lab, pharmacy, & waiting room area.

We do NOT have electricity in this building yet but have been using extension cords so that our pharmacy can function 5 days a week.

We have been unable to open the laboratory yet because we don’t have the basic supplies needed such as slides, test tubes, blood withdrawal kits, etc., to get us started.  We do have larger items such as microscopes, a piccolo machine, & other portable testing devices.

We’ve had several patients come through our clinic that really needed to stay overnight so we could give continuous IV’s, monitor their vitals, etc.  Unfortunately, that area in our new building is still not plastered.

I have learned over the years that everything happens in HIS time. He knows the needs of our community and He knows the hopes/dreams we have for meeting those needs.

Isaiah 40:31 – But those who wait for the Lord [who expect, look for, and hope in Him] Will gain new strength and renew their power; They will lift up their wings like eagles; They will run and not become weary, They will walk and not grow tired.
