Thanks to supporters like you, the Samaritan Clinic in Nejapa continues serving families in this peri-urban community. Most families living here have difficulties to meet their basic needs, including health care, medicines, and clean water.
The Samaritan Clinic offers good-quality services at very low cost. And, in some cases, free medical consultations to patients who live in extremely vulnerable conditions.
This is the case of Guadalupe and her daughter Hanny.
Guadalupe is 22 years old and lives in a sector of Nejapa called Divino Pastor. She lives with her partner and her little daughter.
They have been visiting the Samaritan Clinic for a while now. Guadalupe hopes to find a cure for her daughter’s condition.
Guadalupe shares: “I feel good about the clinic’s services because they treat their patients with love. I have noticed that in other places it is not the same. Here, they always take good care of my girl.”
“For a while now, my daughter has been suffering seizures every time she has a high fever. This started after her first birthday. Since then, doctors at a public hospital have been monitoring her and running tests. I give her medicine to help with that, but still, I need to be extra careful when she gets sick.”
“We came to the clinic today because she is having a lot of constipation. Also, she has symptoms of flu. I was telling the doctor that sometimes she just doesn’t eat. I’m really worried about her condition.”
Guadalupe hopes that with the expertise of our clinic’s pediatrician, she will be able to find a solution to her daughter’s gastric problems. She explains: “The pediatrician gave me some indications related to food. More specifically, he gave me a list of food I shouldn’t feed her, and a list of food that will do her good. He asked me to come back in 15 days so he can follow-up on her condition.”
Please pray for Hanny and stay tuned for future updates on her health!
