Reflections: Jamie Campbell, RN

“It was my second day at Muhima Hospital and I was sitting with April, the HRH nurse midwife, doing a chart review. April was helping me because most of the chart was written in French and needed to be translated. As we were talking she looked me in the eye and said, “I know sometimes our workers seem unmotivated, but please understand they come to work hungry. Sometimes they have not had a meal for a day or two and they are hypoglycemic.” This forever changed my heart and in that moment I realized just how lucky we are to have what we have. I know there have been times when I have been working and I have been hungry. But this was not because of lack of food, I was simply too busy to stop. We need to remember to pray for our Brothers and Sisters in Africa and do all we can to help this amazing culture of people.” — Jamie Campbell, RN, Mercy 4 Ubuzima team nurse
