In the Health Care of the Sisters of Divine Providence – Indonesia
Today the world is "sick and suffering" with the Covid 19 outbreak. In the midst of an uncertain situation, many complaints have been raised. The struggle to meet life's demands is inevitable. When will this epidemic end? What is the way to „make peace“ with Covid 19? At a time when pandemic cases are on the rise, the discovery of a vaccine is the answer to many people's prayers and hopes. Hopefully, the vaccine can break Covid 19.'s spread chain
Since the beginning of 2021, vaccination has been carried out in Indonesia, initiated by President Joko Widodo. Praise be to God, the Pratama Pacasila Clinic, in the city of Temanggung, and the Miriam Kudus Maternity Hospital, in the city of Kudus, were selected to become health services with vaccination capacity. There are many requirements that need to be taken into account for a safe and trouble-free vaccination. With all the labour (which is limited), facilities and infrastructure available, the Sisters of Divine Providence and their staff are eager to provide vaccination services to the community. The Pratama Pacasila Clinic, in Temanggung, served 451 civil servants, including religious leaders from Christianity, Hinduism and Buddhism. Miriam Maternity, Kudus, also has the goal of providing vaccines to 140 Christian religious leaders and the Rotary Club. In addition to outpatient care, doctors at Clinic Pancasila Pratama and Maternidade Miriam are invited to participate in care at the booths opened by the Department of Health. For other services, we are still waiting for the Health Post to be scheduled.
The Spirit of God moved us to dare to break limits, to go beyond the barriers of fear, tiredness and self-limitation, to respond to the call of God through urgent situations of this time. May this pandemic end soon and live with joy!
