Counting pills for Clinic

1, 2, 3, 4, 5 the monotony of counting pills can seem to be one lesser glorious jobs when you work with special needs children. ,6,7,8, 9 10 I once told someone, “All I want to do is hold children”, as I look out the window I can see all the children lined up at the clinic waiting to be seen and I wonder why I’m not with them. 11, 12, 13, 14, 15 I could be making a child smile, laugh, or… I could be handing out pills. 16, 17, 18, 19, 20 these pills are so much more than just round masses of a mixture of chemicals, they have something to give, they have something to represent, they are so much more. They are health. 21, 22, 23, 24, 25, Lord, Thank you for giving me the such an important job, thank you for giving me the opportunity to provide individuals in the community with the medication that could ease their pain or reduce their seizures. 26, 27, 28, 29, 30, “rather you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all to the glory of God”. 31, 32, 33, 34, 35

In january we recieved a total of 87 children at our Namakandwa clinic and february we recieved a total of 86, in wabwoko we recieved 94 in january and in februrary we recieved 96. This has meant that our budget has doubled from 270,000(80) to 400,000 ugsh (130) the need is too much and the cost of medication is going higher!! Please think and pray if there is way you get involved!!
