A Great Welcome Home
We have a good news story from our Temporary Housing project. Mandana, one of the Lead Project Workers has been working with a 57-year-old gentleman who was admitted to hospital with Covid on 4th January. He had gone to see a friend and during his visit he became unwell and had collapsed; his friend had called an ambulance and he was admitted to hospital. We’re pleased to report that he has done extremely well and is due to be discharged this week. During his stay he regularly texted Mandana and called to update her with his progress. He’s been through an awful lot of treatment, from oxygen therapy, intravenous antibiotics, anti-viral drugs and finally the steroid Dexamethasone.
Whilst he was in hospital, he asked Mandana if she could arrange for his room to be sanitised for his return – he was happy to pay for the costs. Mandana then applied for a Ropes Trust grant for this and they agreed to pay the cleaners directly, which she arranged. She also arranged with FIND, the local food bank charity, to deliver bags of fresh fruit and vegetables, groceries and toiletries upon his return. He lives in a shared house, so the other three residents have also been isolating but were looking forward to him coming home and resuming their own normality in the house. Well done Mandana – your support has gone over and above yet again and we really appreciate it.
