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.

The support of Meru County

Yesterday, while trying to cope with the uncountable number of new admissions in the hospital and the many operations accumulated because to the strike of the health workers, to my surprise, I have found Dr Nyaga here in Chaaria: “how are managing the situation, doc?”, he told me.
Of course I was extremely moved and pleased by the fact that the County Director of Medical Services had taken the pain of coming for a support visit to our facility: “we are doing well, Dr Nyaga! With the opening of the new pediatrics, I have got free rooms in the older structure and therefore Ifound a bed to all the patients referred her from Meru Teaching and Referral Hospital”.
We have gone round together, and Dr Nyaga has seen the extreme congestion of the wards with his own eyes, but he has also appreciated our commitment and our enthusiasm to be there to help in a moment of severe crisis for many patients who would not have anywhere else to go for their different ailments.
“I assure you the full support of the County for the management of such a number of surgical and orthopedic cases. 
As from tomorrow I will send Dr Makandi to Chaaria and she will visit all the patients we have referred here; then she will make a theater list, and later we will come every day to operate on our patients in your theater, up the when the strike is over. I will come with surgeons, with traction experts and even with a theater nurse”, Dr Nyaga promised me.


And in fact Dr Makandi today was in Chaaria with us, ready to work with us.
She has visited all the orthopedic patients, and she has been impressed by the fact that our physiotherapist had already managed to immobilize all the fractures with POP and traction.
Dr Makandi has also operated a complex fracture of the elbow in a child, and to other patients in need of general surgery.
Our list today was very long, but we have managed to finish it and also to do 3 caesarean sections and 2 D&C.
Dr Makandi and Dr Nyaga have repeated their commitment to come to operate here as from Monday. With such a help, I think we will manage all the pending operations, in spite of a terrible situation of overcrowding in maternity, in outpatients and in all the wards.
Thank you very much, Dr Nyaga and Dr Makandi, for the continuous support.

Bro Dr Beppe Gaido
