Leitrim nurse based in Kenya seeks help raising funds

Anita’s late father was a farmer and IFA activist.

Anita McTernan, who grew up on a farm in Dromahair, Co. Leitrim, has been working as a volunteer nurse in a Sisters of Mercy Mission Hospital since November 1999.

Our Lady of Lourdes Mutomo Hospital – which celebrated its 50th-anniversary last year – is the only one in its area that caters for a region with 180,000 people; it has 107 staff members.

Funds

Anita - whose late father was a farmer and IFA activist - is seeking assistance from the public to raise much-needed funds for Muotomo hospital in Northern Kenya; it urgently requires essential equipment and medicines.

“In OPD, they are using a 2-drawer filing cabinet – which is not lockable and not secure - for the supplies and drugs used in an emergency situation,” Anita explained.

The hospital requires funds to purchase a medication cart/ trolley will have all the necessary items on it and it can be wheeled next to the patient for prompt and efficient treatment, saving time and diminishing the risk of errors.

“Medication trolleys/carts have an individual drawer for each patient and are wheeled from bed to bed in the ward.”

“This cart enhances the safety of patients during medication administration; it is also lockable which is a security feature.

“It’s exciting to be at work every day and I thank God for my health and energy, to have the opportunity and the privilege to serve the needy people,” she concluded.

Information

100% of the funds raised will be sent to Anita McTernan via the Cavan Famine & Aids Appeal for Africa (Charity Reg. No: 20103903).
