CARE AND COMPASSION MINISTRY
Loving and caring for the people who are sick, suffering and neglected in the community is what inspired the foundation of LOMAMO KENYA. This wonderful work is being carried out by dedicated team in Five Ministry Areas within Kisumu county namely: Nyahera, Ombeyi, Nyalenda, Manyatta slums and along Nairobi Road.
WHAT WE DO
Within our working boundaries we do home based care and this involves visiting the patients every week, providing nutritional support, counseling, buying medications, providing wound care, taking the sick to the hospital and above all else, sharing the Word of God with the sick.
The ministry started with twenty patients but the number has risen tremendously to forty-seven and is still increasing. We have realized that so many people in the community are neglected due to stigma and are sometimes left to die at home. Sometimes the patients lack enough information on how to take their medication which causes poor adherence. LOMAMO caregivers take their time to explain all the important information to the patients in need so they can properly take their medication for maximum benefit.
LIFE CHANGING STORIES:
This is Gordon Oyoo from Nyahera ministry. He is 48 years old and lives with the mother who is also aged. When the team managed to track Gordon at home, he was very sick and malnourished. He was taken to the hospital and was also diagonised with Tuberculosis apart from being HIV positive. The team has been visiting him for three months now and he can see the work of the Lord through the caregivers. Following his testimonies on how he has improved, he gives thanks to the Lord for LOMAMO Foundation and also for the support, love and care he is getting from the caregivers.
This is Joyce Aluoch from Ombeyi ministry. She is 21 years old and was weighing 35 kg when the team visited her at home. She was sick and down with painful chest, coughing and had lost hope in life. The team took her to the hospital and she was admited for two weeks. Joyce was diagonised with tuberculosis and was also diagonised with HIV. Fortunately she was introduced to TB drugs and ARV medication. Three months later while in the program, she now weighs 55 kg! Joyce is still taking her ARVS every day and she thanks the Lord for the support she got from LOMAMO foundation.
