Without the Hidota Health Center, the woman would not have survived her injuries.

Chembeda was brought by her family to the Hidota Health Center to be seen by the volunteer medical team. She suffered severe injuries to both of her legs during a farming accident. She was initially taken to the nearest hospital 6 miles from Bora but they were not equipped to appropriately treat her injuries. The medical team was able to provide advanced treatment and medication. After the team left, the woman came to Hidota for her daily dressing changes. Israel Dejene, Health Gives Hope’s National Director, said, “Without the Hidota Health Center, the woman would not have survived her injuries. No one could give her the treatment she needed to live. She has small children and a husband that need her. She is now healed and back to farming to help provide for her family.” The Hidota Health Center is making a difference in Bora, Ethiopia.
