In August 2012 the abbey dispensary was blessed to have visitors from Germany; with them, they brought some medical supply for the dispensary. Of course this is not the first time for visitors from Germany to help the dispensary with medical supplies. Sometime there have been volunteers working at the dispensary for few months or a year or two. We thank them for their generosity which makes it possible for people with low income to afford medical costs at the dispensary. It hard to imagine sometimes people would not go to a dispensary to get malaria treatment for a dollar and risk to die. But with help like this one from Germany it relieves the burden.
In the photo below visitors are presenting gifts of medical supplies to Frater Lucius Matembo, OSB, the head of the dispensary.
