Traveling in Ethiopia, by Renee Butler 2016 (30 Minute Video)

Apr 4, 2016   //   by Jen   //   Blog  //  No Comments

You are in for a real treat!  Renee Butler shared on a Sunday morning about her personal experience traveling with our Embrace Compassion Team to Arjo Ethiopia in January 2016.  This video shares her heart of compassion, her admiration for the work being done and an word of encouragement to others to get involved and watch for opportunities around them.

Renee has been a wonderful volunteer and giving of herself to the work of Embrace Compassion in Ethiopia and in the US.  For her, this trip was not a one time “gig” but a continuation of a long term commitment.  Embrace Compassion could not do what it does without the many people who share of their time, talents and treasures!

Thank you Renee for sharing!

Disclaimer:  There are a couple of details that are not completely accurate (in regards to getting the baby surgery, $500 and not $5000) and if you have questions you may message us.  In general, catch the heart of the message and enjoy her wonderful stories!

Nekempte hospital is the leading hospital in western Ethiopia, specifically in the Oromia region. Approximately 5 million people surround the hospital and are serviced by the staff at this medical facility.

We would like to highlight some new progress currently underway at the hospital. Dr. Haileyesus, the lead surgeon, has worked diligently to establish teamwork among the staff, the local community and with other non profit helping teams across the world. Doctor Haileyesus finds great success in working hard to build an infrastructure that supports the best care possible for patients. He sees great value in bringing together multiple helpers and team players for the best results.

While our wonderful doctor is very humble, we will boast of some of the wonderful achievements that have come from his leadership and partnership with others.

We are celebrating the opening of a new operating theater that will increase the number of surgeries by 50%! The new operating room gives more options as we have added a new orthopedic surgeon who is using SIGN materials to repair badly broken bones.

We are also celebrating the addition of a new skin grafting dermatome machine that has already increased our level of care for our patients.

With much thanks to the community and their support, to Doctor Haileyesus and his humble leadership and to the supporting NGO’s like Sign and Embrace Compassion, our team is making a wonderful impact for the Oromia region.
