Chaaria è un sogno da realizzare giorno per giorno.

Un luogo in cui vorrei che tutti i poveri e gli ammalati venissero accolti e curati.

Vorrei poter fare di più per questa gente, che non ha nulla e soffre per malattie facilmente curabili, se solo ci fossero i mezzi.

Vorrei smetterla di dire “vai altrove, perché non possiamo curarti”.

Anche perché andare altrove, qui, vuol dire aggiungere altra fatica, altro sudore, altro dolore, per uomini, donne e bambini che hanno già camminato per giorni interi.

E poi, andare dove?

Gli ospedali pubblici hanno poche medicine, quelli privati sono troppo costosi.

Ecco perché penso, ostinatamente, che il nostro ospedale sia un segno di speranza per questa gente. Non ci sarà tutto, ma facciamo il possibile. Anzi, l’impossibile.

Quello che mi muove, che ci muove, è la carità verso l’altro, verso tutti. Nessuno escluso.

Gesù ci ha detto di essere presenti nel più piccolo e nel più diseredato.

Questo è quello che facciamo, ogni giorno.

Dr. Nyaga in Chaaria Mission Hospital

It is with sincere gratitude that I want to appreciate the presence of Dr Elias Nyaga in Chaaria for our first operation of “burr hole in the skull” of a patient with extensive subdural hematoma, secondary to a fall.
It is the first operation of the kind in our hospital and we feel that even today is a pivotal moment and a milestone in the growth of our hospital.
Dr Nyaga is a senior surgeon in the “Meru Level 5 Hospital” and in the government of Meru County. His kind consideration for our facility marks an important step in the growing esteem and cooperation between the Health Authorities of the Country and our mission hospital.
 I express my heartfelt gratitude to Dr Khadija as well, because she has been very active in organizing the operation and she has been the link between us and Dr Nyaga.
The operation has been performed at 7a.m. today, because of the busy schedule of Dr Nyaga later in the day. Our team was ready, waiting for him. As from 6.45a.m.
Dr Khadija has helped Dr Nyaga during the operation which has been performed under general anaesthesia and was very successful.



Our theater staff has been overwhelmed by the kindness of Dr Nyaga and by the very conducive atmosphere he has created during the procedure.
Bro Giancarlo has contributed much to the success of the operation, going to fetch Dr Nyaga in Meru very early in the morning.
We have been a wonderful team united in the aim of helping a person with a very big subdural hematoma.
Now we have high hope that he will improve quickly.

Dear Beppe,
Every day I read the stories of Chaaria and with great pleasure I have to admit that its growth is total. Your surgery specialization continues to be enriched with new skills that are the biggest benefit for the mission.
Its value has a positive fall not only on your poor, but also towards your Superiors and all those who doubted or are hesitant towards your missionary work in its entirety.
You know I respect you a lot and I try to spread the true value of Chaaria around me.
I sent your book to a dear friend of mine Alessandra Bergadano, which always reads the site and often commented. She is excited by reading what you managed to do every day, starting from that small dispensary.
I hope that you realize what you've done to benefit when the defeats seem to have the upper hand and when you regret for not being able to attend Mass or community prayer because a mother and her child who wants to come the world and you are forced to turn away. Work is to pray and faith can be demonstrated in many ways, even with total dedication to others!!!!!!!!
A great big hug.
Anna
