Maluti Adventist Hospital is located in the tiny country of Lesotho serving patients who often travel great distances to receive the compassionate care characterized by Adventist institutions worldwide. Dr. Jorge Rodriguez, medical director, and his wife, also a staff physician, have served at Maluti for fifteen years and are the parents of Spencerville member, German Rodriguez, giving a personal connection to the hospital.
In previous years, the congregation has raised funds for a heating system and laundry equipment; our 2014 project is for an incubator and oxygen concentrator for the pediatric ward as well as additional upgrades to the laundry. The hospital only has one incubator and oxygen concentrator which have to be shuttled back and forth between the maternity and pediatric wards. When more than one child needs these devices difficult decisions have to be made as to which child will receive the benifit.
Pastors Willsey & DiPinto visited Maluti in early December taking with them pillowcases, blankets, and stuffed animals provided by Spencerville’s Keep-in-Stitches ministry.
The Maluti project is sponsored by the North American Division’s Hope for Humanity Ministry (Formerly known as Ingathering.).
