The Care Ladies who Walk!!!
We spent Friday morning (July 17, 2009) at projects and some of us had the pleasure of accompanying home based caregivers from the Natebe community as they visit with patients in their homes. I’ve dubbed them - The Care Ladies who Walk - as that’s what they do…walk many meters to visit with patients in this peri-urban/rural setting. These women put in some long distance time – over hill and crossing the tracks, charging through rocks and sand …each easily matching any of our marathon walkers . They get it done within a few hours. They are cheerful, and thus happily welcomed by folks when they stop by. These caregivers are strong, highly committed and are extremely resourceful!!
