Hello, the Oasis of Hope

On Thursday morning, the driver from the hospital picked us up at the hotel, and we crossed the border in what felt like 10 minutes!


Then after a short 30 minute drive, we arrived at the Oasis of Hope!


After a quick briefing and registration we went down to the cafeteria for lunch. There is a very good salad bar.



The basic food all vegan, although today I was told I will be given animal protein based on my blood test result… as I still am slightly anemic apparently.


Then we met with a doctor who asked us a list of questions and gave a very thorough physical check- literally from the top of my head to the tips of my toes.

After everything he gave a prayer for my healing, which I thought was nice. I know a lot of people are rather ‘allergic’ to religion, but I’ve always been relatively comfortable with basic religious teachings that try to help humanity. Well as long as it’s not so extreme or harmful to anyone. So I prayed with the doctor for my healing.


Then I started my treatment straight away.

Then a quick supper and time for bed. My first day. So far so good, everyone is very friendly and we are well taken care of. I am very grateful to be here.
