Every day, she managed to go
through the manifestation of her illness with patience and gratitude at heart.
Sometimes she faced some struggles due to her illiteracy, like her inability to
buy her own, medication or know which paperwork or prescription to hand in at
the hospital or pharmacy.
She has a bag filled with medical
reports and x-rays. When she needs to buy medicine, she can’t even present the
right prescription, so she hands over the whole bag and asks the person in
charge to find the right one. It takes her a long time to do it and delays
other patients waiting in the line.
The Hospice Egypt team and volunteers
helped her to organize her medical file in chronological order and classified
it into categories; each in a different color so that each report or prescription
would be easily found without confusion. Simple things like these can make a
huge difference in a patient’s life.
