Little Mercy is six and a half months and suffers from a spinal disease which she has undergone treatment for and is still in the hospital.
Little Mercy is six and a half months and cannot physically support herself due to her illness. She suffers from spinal stenosis a spinal disease which, if untreated, can lead to paralysis and death. They went to Coast General [public] hospital in Mombasa but the doctors sent them to Mewa hospital where there are professionals. She has undergone special treatment in ICU up to the present, and is still in the hospital. In Kenya they don’t release a patient until the account is fully paid and the continuing medicines are procured, from them.
She was born after her young father Mohdy [Mohammed] was killed accidently in a market place when the police were hunting down a gang of thieves. We had sponsored him through High School and he had stayed at our Kensha Street Youth house in nearby Mariakani. There is no male left in the immediate 3 generation family unit – no wage earner. We have helped the family and Pastor Bob Abdalla and the leaders of Kensha have encouraged and supported them.
The present hospital bill is Kenya 83,000/=. Two gifts have already come in of 30000/= and 25,200/=. Leaving 27000/= being NZ$445.
Harvest Partnership Trust is a registered charity under NZ law and a member of Missions Interlink New Zealand. We are a service mission focusing on East Africa from the Coast to the Great Lakes. See our mission statement at harvestpartnership.org
The funds will be used to pay for the hospital bills to treat her condition.
