In a trend of repeated loss, she continued to live. Grace’s, every trial to raise a life keeps on ending in heartbreak, leaving her too defenseless to every hateful person’s mockery. Her quest for the happiness that comes with having children has yet to bear fruit in her life. Thus far, it has turned out to be a foundation of isolation. Despite a person’s trials to calm her down, her spirits refuse to be soothed by anyone’s pleasant counseling; for nothing hurts her more than her four babies, who have returned to God the creator, so early.
“I have turned to a playing ground of savages, my pain has become their delight, and I have no one to turn to in this mental-consuming experience, not even my loving husband who has been instigated several times to leave me,” said Grace, her giggling eyes controlled by the deep emotions in her couldn’t stop the tears flooding her chic’s.
In every married woman’s life, giving birth to a baby is the loveliest component of every female delight. The joy and happiness it brings is unmatched by anything in a mother’s life experiences. A new emotional bond that binds the two together prompts her to realize her interest in the new life that a child brings besides, the responsibility to protect this new life excites the mother, overwhelming her with joy and happiness but also making her anxious.
Along with the regular excitement and anxiety that comes from giving birth or conceiving, a woman can also have one principal question on her mind. specifically, what’s next in the baby’s life?
In 2017, Grace was pregnant for the first time and was full of energy, as every mom should be. As the days passed, her delivery time knocked on the door, and it finally arrived on the anticipated month, September of the same year. A nurse drove her to the maternity ward of the Nakapiripirit Health Center. When the setup of the room was ready for her to deliver, the midwives laid her on the bed with her body positioned rightfully. At that moment, Grace was only rational about the gladness she was bound to get in the shortest time.
“I was so excited at that time and I don’t remember feeling any of the pain during delivery,” she said. Because the excitement of having a child enveloped her in fantasies, she never thought once about what was about to devour her happiness. After numerous moans, the little innocent child came out, but shockingly, it didn’t cry. And in a few turns, the doctor pronounced him dead, driving the mother crazy. She continued, “That was shocking! I never thought of that taking place. I had kept on only daydreaming about holding, and loving him, but the news from the doctor blew my mind, succumbing me to tears.”
Heavenly Father, thank you-you are the God of all comfort and joy. I pray you to send your spirit to uplift Grace’s sad heart. Shine a warm light on her cold heart. Only your love can melt sorrow and fill us with joy. I ask this prayer through your Son, Jesus Christ Amen. I did this when I realized that her loss was too deep; I urged her to pray with me and then move on.
This young woman’s quest and hurt didn’t end there. In 2018, she got her second pregnancy, but just like previously, she again lost her child after one month of life. “The second loss felt like it added more load to the already heavy burdens, my inner healing scar soared again and I was considering dying. ” In the following two years, Satan’s hunting of her children continued, repeating the skill, leaving her fighting depression.
Despite her struggles, the community and people around her tormented her even more vigorously, calling her many bad names that have ever existed on this earth. Not only that, but they also influenced the husband to leave her with conviction, the husband was fighting two conflicting thoughts, wondering which to go with. But Grace assured him that, whatever decision he made, he would remain her husband, and she would not tempt marrying someone else.
When her husband deserted her for a year, her humility served her well; upon seeing this, the Comboni sisters assigned her to care for one of the deserted kids whose mom is on the run due to the fact she by no means envisioned having a family. Grace is now content with the boy that God has given her in some other way. The husband, knowing he made a mistake by abandoning his wife, decides to return to her, and the wife is now in St. Kizito hospital Matany, with her newborn child after delivering a few days ago. She appeals to all of us to wish her and her newborn child their happiness together.

When our bodies are in pain and our hearts begin to question our life path, the fear of losing our precious life takes a toll on our normal reasoning, sending us into a spiral of fantasy. Looking for hope in a difficult situation becomes our primary goal, and we embark on that journey by bringing a patient to the hospital with the belief that healing is possible here.

Upon the arrival of these critically ill patients at the hospital and successive admissions in respective wards, primarily the Medical Ward, the sadness yet hopefulness for recovery written on each patient’s face digs into our Health workers’ hearts with sympathy, arousing the feeling of pity which, in turn, motivates their creativity and teamwork in a bid to save lives.

“When I first arrived here in April 2018, my legs were blotted `and’ I was struggling to walk, I couldn’t eat because the sickness had detached my appetite for food,” Kerisa told our news hub. “My sister helped in pushing me around in a wheelchair to see a doctor, which was very generous of her.”

Kerisa and his newfound friend Nadien are the two boys ever-present in the compound of St. Kizito hospital Matany, which they call home; the boys with blotted tummies have been brought down to their knees by a disorder they are in, and their homes have become a distant memory. This is such a reality that is often hard to embrace.

“These two fellows are being managed for liver cirrhosis under chronic care,” said a diploma nurse Hillary Anyakun, the in-charge of the medical ward, the hospital medical center. “Kerisa is a hepatitis B negative patient and Nadien is a hepatitis B positive patient, they have been in supportive management with our treatment, and they are under the Samaritan fund helping most vulnerable patients to pay their bills.”

Samaritan fund has been a revelation to many patients who are unable to meet their medical bills, imagine without the fund, where will the two boys dig for the money to pay their medicinal bills. As the name is pronounced, Samaritan funding mimics the Samaritan who helped the wounded man in the wilderness after being beaten by the robbers to the sorry state.

Nobody will ever feel comfortable living with a chronic illness; however, some unfortunate people have done so, and some have died as a result of the awful ailment. Kerisa Emmanuel and Nadien Francis are some of the unlucky patients in our hospital.

“How I wish that someone comes up with the treatment to clear the wounds in our livers,” said Nadien, “some good people love us despite our complex condition, but some immoral ones laugh at us, and this makes us sorrowful.”

The plea of these two boys is not the call for their stomachs to be filled with food, though they need it. But a plea to get well again. But how possible is it, my friends? It is only possible if we can manage to extend our hands to areas that seem unreachable so that we provide them with the best treatment needed.

Imagine if these boys became well again! Imagine how happy they will be! Imagine them being with their families! Imagine how happy you will be for them, and imagine the blessings you will get if helped by you… Thanks.
