This week we welcomed Dr Judy Rothberg, a Paediatrician from Wits University and Raheema Moosa Mother and Child Hospital in Johannesburg, to our Bulungula Health Point! Dr Judy provided care for our children, as well as mentored our nurse, Sister Chuma, on child clinical management, and revised her IMCI training.
Because health care is such a far and dangerous journey for our community members, many parents only bring their children to the clinic or hospital if it is urgent. Providing local health services, and strengthening systems for our nurse to continue care is profound for increasing access to health care in our areas.
And the most exciting news.. Dr. Judy has committed to return for another week of support in September 2021. Enkos’ kakhulu, Dr. Judy, we deeply appreciate your continued support!
