Arriving at a clinic when dangerously ill presents an emergency …
With a high fever, vomiting and diarrhoea, Zeridah needed to come to the Siese Clinic in Uganda. Although Nurse Harriet immediately helped her, Zeridah was weak and dehydrated, barely able to stand.
When Nurse Harriet examined her, she tested Zeridah formalarial parasites. The test proved positive. Immediately, anti-malaria treatment began. But Zeridah’s body could not respond and her vomiting continued. Nurse Harriett put her on intravenous treatment. Then slowly the medication began to take effect.
‘Zeridah recovered due to the immediate treatment she received,’ explains Annette Lange of CCW. ‘Thanks to those who support this ministry, the often-deadly disease of malaria has claimed one less victim!’
With her Christian commitment to service, Nurse Harriet offers life-giving help.
Almost half the World's population are at risk from malaria. The risk of disease can be reduced by preventing mosquito bites through the use of mosquito nets and insect repellents, or with
mosquito control measures.
