Rev. Dr. Liombe Timothy, Pastor Roland Lyonga, Pastor Ebai Doughlas and Pastor Ngong Gabriel as well as the Baptist Press, have symbolically given a hand of applause to the Health Team at the Health Services Complex for their relentless efforts to save lives and serve the community. This was during a 6:30am visit to the health workers at their Chapel in Dibanda recently. The Administrator thanked the team for the Sacrifice to come encourage them revealing that, they are indeed a complex having different departments which are not directly related. In a devotion captioned; “The Purifying Effect of Sufferings” drawn from Romans 5:3-4, the Field Pastor expressed great appreciation on behalf of the Field, for the personnel’s resilience throughout the Socio-Political Crisis and Covid-19 Pandemic. He reminded the Health personnel that as far as Covid-19 is concerned, they are at the forefront of the battle, risking their lives to save lives. He called the crisis “a pruning process by the Lord to make them tutors in future when they emerge victorious.” He also called on them to serve consciously because the coming of the Lord is near. The Clergies prayed for the Staff asking God to sustain them. The Administrator and his Administrative team later ushered the delegation to the different departments of the complex, amongst which was the Covid-19 Center were citizens do their test before travelling out of the country. The Work Space for HIV Free was also seen. The Chemical Production Department was visited where liquid soap, antiseptic and bleaches are made and the workers expressed some of the challenges amongst which was the lack of machines to facilitate adequate measurements and large scale production. The Non-Sterile Production unit where syrups for children, drugs, hand gel, creams are produced was also visited and the personnel said their main challenge is the need for an Oral machine to facilitate Large Scale Production. The Quality Assurance Department was also visited, the Sterile Production/Drug Store where infusion flutes and eye drugs are produced. HESCO Water Unit was also visited and the workers said being among the top water production companies, they have high demand. Their challenges range from frequent break downs, the effects of electricity seizures which affects their machines and more. These hinders their goal of producing in large scale. The Medical Supplies Unit and the Regional Training Center of Excellence which is a new training Institute managed by the Complex was also visited and the Students presented to the August guest. In each department, the Field Pastor and his team prayed for the challenges faced by the department. At the end of the visit Rev. Dr. Liombe Timothy expressed his amazement at the different services rendered at the complex and encouraged the Administration to keep up with the good work hoping that their challenges will be handled progressively.
