A local nurse in her treatment of diabetics
In 2008 the St. Luke’s Medical Project opened a clinic at the Mother’s Village and supported it by bringing medical supplies there. We employed a local nurse and a young doctor who provided first aid to the many communities and to the poor during the season when the Order of Malta Clinic was closed. We did this because we were particularly anxious to continue our support for the outstanding humanitarian work being done in the whole region by the Franciscans of the parish. Currently, on request, we supply this nurse with medications to treat diabetics, she gives her service voluntarily.
