Medical to the remote

This Blog is all about the work of God. Nothing we do is without the knowledge of our Father. He is the soul provider for everything we do.
We are Mordegai, Toinette, Suzaan,Gideon and Anton Rossouw from Namibia-Africa. . This Blog is all about our lives here in Cambodia while Suzaan works in South Africa. We are real Farmers from Africa and we love life and what it have to offer and enjoy it day by day.

Mordegai travels to remote villages up in the far North of Cambodia, doing much needed medical work ,where no other doctors go, with local pastors as well as the Department of Health of Ratanakiri.

Toinette is at home with the boys. Homeschooling Gideon is a task not for sissies, while Anton is in Eli school. .She joins FGC Community Link Cambodia to the villages close by, teaching local children in an after school setting and also women about Health Issues in a village setting.

We consider us Asians as we live such a long time in Asia, eating rice as a staple food and not meat......

Our motto in life comes from a dear friend:

With common sense and God we
can accomplish a lot

Nena Nita

We also visited little Nena Nita. Ineke helped with the delivery of this little miracle. She is a "Spina Befida " baby. The backbone was still open upon birth. That is a gateway for infections. By now the wound is covered up but only with flesh but no skin. It is still a source and great danger for infection. July went and talk to them . They are afraid to go back to the hospital because the doctors scoulded them because they did not do an operation earlier on. They also do not have any money. At the moment she also have a terrible infection on the buttocks. This is because she is all the time laying in one position. The mother needs to turn her more often, otherwise it will turn into some pressure wounds. We bought a little water matress for her to sleep on.

We ask that you please need to pray for wisdom as well. The mother is alone with 3 children and say that do not have someone to look after the kids in order to get to hospital. Money is also a big issue. I am not sure how much a life is worth? That is not for me to decide. As long as we can save one, that will do for me.!

Going to hospital is always a big issue. You will never understand the problems we have to get peolple finally to an operation. And when the operation is done you need to see that your patient does not die of infection inside the hospital. Luckely we are in good contact with the Social Health workers. They can make a big bill into a small one. Thank God for that. We also ask that you will pray that we will be connected to the right kind of doctors.

We went to the doctor with Anna. She is a very good midwife/friend from MMC. Good to have all these wonderful Pinoys here with us, makes life so much easier. Well we went to hospital and talked to a doctor. He was giving us advice on what to do. I will contact him again next week and then he will give me a time when I can come to start doing the Build-up for the operation. We asked the parents to be ready any time. What was wonderful is the fact that the father was also there and he was grateful that we want to help. The family need to be prepared with a babysitter for the other children and need to have someone for the hospital as well. SO I think they are preparing for this now. We want the family to take responsibility for this and they need to participate.
