Pauline lies in bed

Health Care | Print

She’s spending her last days in the dark. Pauline lies in bed, dying of old age in her mud hut. Her family cares for her, but they still can’t do much to give her quality of life. A nearby church heard about Pauline’s suffering and has brought her a white, five-gallon bucket full of comfort items like straws, socks and lip balm. The elderly woman doesn’t react to the gift—her pain is too overwhelming. But her family members express gratitude. These simple items will help them care for her. Pray for Pauline as she passes away, and pray for her family members as they try their best to make her comfortable.
