Caritas South Sudan has partnered with Salesian Sisters serving in the Catholic Diocese of Wau to present three oxygen concentrators to the COVID-19 management facility that the nuns set up in a government-run hospital early this month to help manage reported cases of the coronavirus infections.
“We have brought to you three oxygen concentrators, a few facemasks and 95 hand sanitizers and surgical masks,” Sr. Grace Adkhirayil, the Director of Mary Help Association told Voice of Hope Radio (VOH) of the Catholic Diocese of Wau (DOW), a Wau-based radio that is part of South Sudan’s Catholic Radio Network (CRN).
Members of the Association of Mary Help of Christians (ADMA) and Caritas South Sudan, the Humanitarian arm of the Catholic Bishops in the East-Central African state also contributed to the facility some Personnel Protection Equipment (PPE).
Sr. Adkhirayil told the staff at the hospital, “I am so glad to be here to present to you a few PPE, which is very essential in starting the triage and engaging some serious patients with critical cases.
The donated items, according to the Director of Mary Help Association, aim at getting the triage facility ready to receive patients suspected to be infected with COVID-19.
