Going Big at St. Philip

Today was EPIC at St. Philip Health Center. Our Visionary In-Charge Moses typified his Go Big attitude by advertising on the radio and churches on the same day…

  1. Free HIV testing  (tested 90 people for HIV)
  2. Free drop-in Cervical Cancer screening (screened 40 women)
  3. The opening of our Inpatient service

And all that in addition to seeing 70 patients as part of regular outpatients. Crazy town.

You heard it right, we’ve opened our Inpatient, 24 hour service. St. Philip is now a mini hospital – sort of. Complete with beds, night staff and everything. We had our first 4 admissions today, 3 with severe malaria and one with bad epilepsy 4 seizures in one day. Great work moses and the team!

      🙂 Well done Moses indeed. He stayed on until 7:00pm off his own back too to make sure there was a good handover to the first night shift. Amazing…

    This is unbelievable. I will admit to holding back a tear to see the fruit of your labour.Surely part of the good works God prepared for you to do. Before you came, success at St Philips was to see the doors of the original inadequate hut, open. Now this! Brilliant work. Massive congratulations

      St. Philip at least has been a massive team effort. I don’t think I’ve even been the biggest player. The foundation was already there when we arrived, built with the vision and you and the team generated, and the money the team generated from Nu-Health. The Bishop raised the money for completion from a generous South Carolina Diocese. Moses and Natasha have been immense in the moving process and opening of in-patients as well. So many people involved…
