Impact Story- How UOSSM Helped Om Ahmad
Om Ahmad fled from Kafr Nobl to Quorqonia after someone she loved died.This caused her a lot of trauma. She started to feel tired and sick because her blood pressure was so high, and she wasn’t able to get her medications. Om Ahmad visited UOSSM’s Quorqonia Primary Health Care Center, where she was examined. The doctor who examined her placed Om Ahmad on a six-month treatment plan, where she will visit the center once a month. She received a special card for patients with chronic diseases which provides a visit with the doctor, testing, and all medications, free of charge. Despite her suffering, Om Ahmad is happy because she is able to get her medicines on a monthly basis. She also has a sense of security because she can visit the center anytime she is feeling ill or tired. We are praying for Om Ahmad to remain in good health. Together, we are saving lives and building hope.
