CAREGIVERS - HOME VISITS IN RURAL AREAS
Home Based Care in Sweetwater’s
We have teams of Home Base Carers who are voluntary workers, moving amongst the community from Monday to Friday. Our patients are often bedridden and bordering on starvation due to lack of resources. Many elderly Grannies have up to 15 children whom they care for on a meagre pension. Only God knows how they manage and we are the only means of food and medicine.
God’s supply in money, food and gifts has been overwhelming. This has made the ministry possible and we would just like to thank each and every one of you who have contributed in any way to enable us to reach to reach the folk out there. The down side of this is that poverty is rampant. Many people are dying . I fear this is going to escalate.
