“There are three doors we all pass through as adults. The first door is when we are working usually, and we’re pretty independent. We can care for ourselves. We’re healthy and happy... The second door we encounter is when we’re older, or something happens that we need some help from family, or our community to live in our own home, or the home of a relative or friend. We call that ‘assistance’ or assisted living — where we depend on others to some degree or another. Finally, for many of us there comes a point at which even with family and caregivers we just can’t safely remain in our homes or in our communities. I call that the ‘third door.’ When we pass through that third door we go into a nursing home. It’s not what any of us want to have happen, but when it happens isn’t it better to go into a facility where you truly are a village, a community and among friends? That’s what Kissito offers — a second family, a village of people who care.

The Last Sunday Drive *Alice doesn’t trust Alan, her only son, so she doesn’t go out with him. He can’t take her to dinner, or a movie, or dancing. The days of long drives in the country after church, then stopping for ice cream or pie and coffee are over. When she had pneumonia one winter she almost died because she refused to call Alan to take her to the emergency room. It was her pastor and her neighbors who found her when she failed to show up for church two Sundays in

a row. Their decision to check on her saved her life, but made her fear Alan even more. “You could have died!” he yelled at her. That was the week she decided to give her suitcases to the Salvation Army. It’s not that Alan was a cruel son. He wasn’t. There was no more loving, concerned or more protective son on the planet, and that was what Alice feared most.

“I don’t know what it is that makes me think this,” she confided to her best friend, “But I think one day I’ll get in that big cozy Towncar of his and we’ll go off for a long drive in the country, then get some ice cream and coffee and then, instead of taking me home he’ll drive up to some fancy nursing home somewhere and say, ‘mother, I think this is what’s best for you now. You’ll be better off here.’ And that will be the last Sunday Drive I’ll ever take.” She doesn’t want to risk losing her independence, or get involved in a lengthy, expensive court battle to prove she’s independent enough to live alone. At a time in her life when she should be able to trust her son and depend on him to help her with the things she can’t do, she is pulling away from him, unable to believe that he will talk to her about a nursing home before he makes plans to simply send her off to one.

Life didn’t end when Melba had a stroke eight years ago. The effects of her stroke left her in a wheelchair. Later she needed to be moved into a nursing home. “QUOTE,” she said. One of the things the stroke didn’t destroy was Melba’s drive to help. After she settled into the home and her recovery progressed Melba began looking around for ways to help her neighbors at Palm View. She decided the home needed a store, a place where residents could buy soft drinks, snacks and gift items. She went to nursing home administrators with the idea and they listened. “QUOTE,” said Palm View’s director, NAME. “QUOTE.” So Melba and some of the nursing home staff cleared out a closet, bought some items for her to sell, and Palm View’s first store was born. Several years later when the facility underwent a makeover, a larger location, with more room for crafts, food and house-keeping items was created. Additional staff were brought in to run the store and Melba became one of several residents who continued to find purpose, meaning and the opportunity to lead a fulfilling life.

Kissito provides the medications — antibiotics, pain medications and other support mothers need to help nourish their babies. The earliest a child can enter the program is age six months. Before that time mothers are encouraged to breast feed their child and to seek good nutritional habits themselves — something hard to do in a country where protein isn’t scarce, but it is expensive.

Above — Left to Right, mothers and their babies line up along the concrete bench in front of the doctor’s office to wait their turn to be seen and prescribed nutritional supplements and medication by the volunteers and midwives (seated at the table right). Right — a volunteer bags up nutritional supplements for a mother. The women return every two weeks for their child to be weighed, assessed and treated for malnutrition. The average length of stay in the program is six weeks, longer if a child is severely malnourished.

Be Part of the

Solution Join Us Sometimes throwing money at a problem IS a great solution. But it’s not the only solution, nor is it the best. But it helps. Money can help a lot, especially in the short term, or in a crisis situation. What Kissito has found helps us all so much more is partnering with people who care. By collaborating with people and their resources to create a village of people, businesses, ideas, money, time, medicine and whatever each villager has to oer we change the village. And when we change the village, we change the world. The world truly is a village. What happens in Africa aects everyone around the world. You might not see it now, but the few hours or dollars or connection you invest in Kissito could one day be used to solve problems like global warming, to increase the life expectancy and quality of life of billions of people. and to make the world a better place for you to live too. Learn more about partnering with Kissito Health International. Become part of our village and save, improve or expand your own at the same time. 121
