The following letter is from our Mission Partner Sister
Marion in Tanzania.
Dear Parishioners,
Greetings from Tanzania.
Thank you so much for your most generous
contribution to our projects. I am always so
proud to tell the people here about you and
the concern that you have for the orphans
and children who are HIV+.
When this
happens at a meeting I take out a map and
show people exactly where you live. I don’t
know
that
this
gives
them
a
true
understanding of how far you are reaching
across continents to help them, but it does
impress them and as always they tell me to
greet you and thank you.
We have been able to help some of the
children who needed surgery. Sadiki, four
years old, came in from a village about 25
miles from here. (His grandmother is a
neighbor of one of our good friends (Stella)
and it was Stella who brought the father and
son to us.) We took Sadiki to the regional
hospital in town and he was diagnosed with
melanoma of the elbow and referred to the
Zonal Hospital in Mwanza, 150 miles from here.
Fortunately, Liz, the lay missioner I live with,
has friends in the right places and she called
the surgeon there and he told her to send the
child with a letter addressed to him.
Sadiki
and his father went down on a Wednesday
June 27, 2010
and he was operated on Friday and discharged
on Sunday. The surgeon feels that the tumor
is not cancerous, but we still await the
pathology report. Sadiki has a 3 ½ inch scar on
his elbow, but full range of motion. We should
get the report this week. When the father got
back to Musoma he received word that his
youngest child (nine months old) had died.
Both parents are HIV+, as is Sadiki, so most are
saying the child died of AIDS.
Another child we were able to help is a one
year old girl who was jabbed in the eye with
something. The mother does not know what
really happened as she left the child with
other children while she went to the fields to
plant. The doctors could do nothing to save
the eye so we helped pay for the operation to
remove it. It was a sad day for me, but in the
long run it was the best thing for the child.
I am telling you these stories because it is
through your help that we are able to
facilitate some things which would not be
affordable for some parents. There are times
when I sit in awe of people here – there is so
much hardship and tragedy in their lives, but
they continue live in faith, thank God for the
blessings they receive and move with
whatever comes into their lives.
Know that I keep each one of you very close in
my heart. Thank you for being there, caring
and loving and giving me the courage to take
another step into the future with the children.
My love and prayers,
Sr. Marion
