Père a ga awe
The Father is back!
Yesterday I arrived in Bozoum after almost 2 and half months of absence…. And entering in Bozoum I could hear the people cry Père a ga awe The Father is back!… And I really appreciated it!
On the 19th of july I went back to italy because I was unwell…the very next day I was already in Cuneo Hospital under the eyes of two very capable doctors. They eventually excluded surgery intervention however my exams showed an high anemia, several irregularity on blood levels and engrossed spleen. Basically the result of years of malaria caused me very low energy level and exhaustion….I spent some time in Negar Hospital, then back to Cuneo where I stayed most of the time, resting and taking it easy.
In the quiet moments I took some time to think… about the gift of health, also about how difficult it is to get medical care in Africa. Even relatively simple treatments (blood exams, ultrasound scan) are rather difficult to make, sometimes impossible, and in any case it would be too expensive and noone would be able to afford it.
I believe that the most important thing is to be thankful for a ll this, to help us live with more sense of awareness, responsibility and sobriety.
