Administrative and medical staff play an important role in providing vital treatment and health care to sponsored children. They bless sponsored children, families and communities with life-changing medical care and resources that would otherwise be very difficult to access.
In rural Kenya, 2-year-old Nelson was born with a rare and life-threatening disease called congenital hydrocephalus. Fortunately, Nelson’s mother, Anita, registered him at a local Compassion center.
The center helped Nelson and Anita access treatment from a neurosurgeon, an ophthalmologist and several other specialists, ensuring that he is receiving the greatest amount of care possible. Marilyn, an administrative medical staff member at the Compassion center, assured that Anita felt supported by the local church as they worked together to care for Nelson.
“When Nelson’s mother came with him to the church, there was no way we were turning him back. We thank God for bringing Nelson to us and for using the church to help him,” Marilyn shares.
We’re incredibly grateful to our medical staff members for caring for sponsored children’s medical needs so that they heal, grow and flourish.
