Medical Help of Mama Artemisia Medical Help Success stories: Dickson Mwemba
Dickson worked as a Mountain Porter to make a living for himself and his family of 4 children. He likes work and to be “strong”.  He suffered of a serious Hernia and was not able to carry weight any more. After an Hernia Operation in February 2011 in Seliani Hospital/Arusha Dickson has recovered. Financial support came from one of the members of   Mamafrika e.V. Whenever he will find possibility to climb “the mountain” he will be able to lift and carry weight again.
Medical Help of Mama Artemisia Medical Help Success stories Just make everything possible! Mamaafrika was able to find a sponsor for Nuru. This Kenyan child was born with the Treacher-Collins-Syndrom, a genetically caused disease. With the help of an Austrian Company we could arrange to bring him and his mother Sikuzani to Landeskrankenhaus Salzburg (Salzburg Hospital) for a first treatment.
Thanks to Hilmar and his boss and thanks to the Ronald Mc. Donald –House in Salzburg.
Nuru is now able to attend school! The Kenyan Boy Nuru was born without outer ears! Due to his life conditions in the small village Eldoro it would not have been possible to find help. In Austria Nuru got a bone anchored hearing aid and will be able to attend school now. There is so much to do and where there is a will there is a way!
