Sr. Jacqueline Injete, Leiterin des St. Ann Krankenhauses in Igoji/Kenia, berichtet in einer Email von zwei Ereignissen.

Im Juli konnte auf dem Krankenhausgelände eine neue Leichenhalle eingeweiht werden, die es den Angehörigen ermöglicht, von ihren Verstorbenen in einem würdigen Rahmen Abschied zu nehmen.

Erstmals gebar eine Frau Drillinge im St. Ann Krankenhaus, ein seltenes Ereignis in Kenia, da die meisten Mehrlingsschwangerschaften aufgrund der mangelhaften medizinischen Versorgung von Schwangeren nicht ohne Komplikationen verlaufen. Die Entbindung erfolgte durch Kaiserschnitt in dem Operationssaal der aus Mitteln der Martinsaktion der Marienschule vor einigen Jahren eingerichtet worden war. (Vorher mussten die schwangeren Frauen, bei denen ein Kaiserschnitt notwendig war, über fast 100 km auf sehr schlechten Straßen in ein größeres Krankenhaus transportiert werden.)

Das an sich freudige Ereignis wird aber durch große Probleme überschattet.
Aber lesen Sie selbst die Email von Sr. Jacqueline:


Dear sisters and friends of the  PHJC Kenyan Pro-region and specifically St. Ann Mission Hospital in Igoji Kenya.


Loving greetings from us trusting you are fine and the good Lord taking care of you.
As I write this message on behalf of my sisters I am grateful to God who has continually been our everything that we need in this life. Then I am grateful to each one of you for the support weather through prayer, finance or material.
Today am pleased to share that our Fifteen bodied Mortuary was completed and we officially blessed and opened it on the 26.07.2014 the feast day of our Hospital. It was a beautiful celebration crowned with a Eucharistic  celebration, we are grateful to God who has seen us through.
Words can not express our hearts joy and so. Thank you all and God bless you.

We also had a very beautiful encounter in our hospital where on Tuesday 29.07.2014 there was a triplet delivery in our hospital through caesarian section a woman had three babies, this is a rare happening and you could have seen how the media flocked in to take the story  of this beautiful event .We were all happy and excited. The three babies weighed as follows, the first had 2,1 kg, second had 1,9 kg, third had 1,6 kg. The second and third are in our small Nursery at the hospital and the first one is with the mother in the postnatal ward. After the two have increased in weight then the Mother can be discharged out of the hospital. The sad thing about the mother of the three babies is that she is a single mother who has been doing casual works to take care of herself and her first born five year old. A visit to her house saddened the whole thing because she has a simple structure without even a bed, mattress or blankets, we then understood why the woman was never happy when she was informed she had triplets, infact she said she could accept only two of the babies, she has been counselled and has accepted the three children the challenge is when we discharge her from the  hospital where she is getting all her needs for now, how will she survive with the three babies. A question that we sisters working in the hospital are asking ourselves daily as the babies continue to increase their weight and will soon be discharged from hospital. One of the politicians has offered to buy for her a bed, blankets and sheets, we are requesting different people to help the woman weather it is in a small or a big way. That is the latest from St. Anne Mission Hospital.
Thank you for being always with us and sharing with us our happiness and also our challenges. Have a blessed week.
with Gods blessings on behalf of the sisters at St. Ann  Hospital.

Sr. M. Jacqueline Injete PHJC.
