The medical student and Stephan Holderegges met at the University Hospital in Zurich. The reports about the work of the association in Kenya, aroused Ivan Skrebec’s interest to get to know the Rhine-Valley Hospital. So in March, he traveled to Kenya, visited hospital staff.
He arrived at the hospital on a Thursday morning. It was one of the regular vaccination days for babies and receive a comprehensive vaccination that protects against tetanus, mumps, TB typhoid, diphtheria, rubella, whooping cough and measles. Although he had just met the hospital and the team, Ivan Skrebecs spontaneously asked for his help.
Mama Matata (hospital director Ruth Schäfer) gladly accepted this support. The medical student weighed the babies and checked the vaccination level so far. Only then was the child administered the vaccine.
To ensure that each child is vaccinated and that the risk of infection is reduced to a minimum, the temporary employee immediately arranged a follow-up appointment with the mother.
