Martin Ramadengar was near death when his family learned of the new dispensary in Dono-Manga, Chad 20 miles from their village of Mouassede. Against all odds they made the long journey carrying Martin who was too weak to walk on his own. Pierre Rimorbe, lead evangelist in Dono-Manga, reported that during the next three weeks our nurse Eloi Madjiadoum treated Martin, and he is now able to walk on his own and is getting stronger every day. But the clinic did more than heal his physical body. During his three weeks of treatment he and his family
were taught the Gospel of Christ. Martin and five of his family members were just baptized into Christ.
Pierre reported that the dispensary is seeing an ever increasing number of patients, especially children with treatable childhood illnesses. Without the dispensary the vast majority of these children would not live. Over 50% of children under five years of age will die from these very treatable illnesses. Mosquito nets are also being provided for mothers with very young children. Our dispensary is saving lives while at the same time opening the door for the message of Christ to be preached.
Treatment and medication is offered at a greatly reduced cost, but sufficient to provide funds for replacement drugs that we are able to purchase through Dr. Eni, teaching surgeon at the University Teaching Hospital in Maiduguri, Nigeria. In keeping with Hope Springs’ goal of establishing works that can become self-sustaining, our dispensary is just one example of how successfully this can be accomplished. Your support of Hope Springs International is more than a gift, it is an investment in people now, and for generations to come.
