SBVM Superior General, Sr. Edina Kanjira has sounded the alarm on behalf of the congregation saying assistance is needed for nuns hit by Covid-19 and are in isolation.

“Due to Covid-19 pandemic we are going through tough financial crisis. As a congregation we are terribly hit. Our sisters from different Communities have tested Covid 19 positive. Some of them are in hospital on oxygen, those who don’t need extra oxygen are advised to live on quarantine. Due to set up of our houses we cannot properly cover those who are infected in our houses for fear of infecting many,” reads the request from Sr. Kanjira.

Kanjira says since the congregation cannot keep the infected nuns in the convent, a provisional house has been set at as an isolation place at Imanol Laranaga clinic at Nyungwe in Chiradzulu.

“Therefore, we come to you to ask for support in form of cash or kind,” the request goes.

The list of things needed include 10 single rexin mattresses and pillows, bed sheets, blankets; peddle bins and bin liners; 10 chairs and tables; three electric kettles; three flasks; utensils and buckets; toiletries; one fridge; TV set; Personal Protective Equipments; disinfectant (Milton) and food items.

“We have put the list so that you can select from there according to your ability,” writes Kanjira.

The Catholic Church is one of the sectors severely hit by the Covid-19 pandemic with a number of priests and nuns dying every week.

They need support, but why do they come together in such a large group, standing close to each other, if they already have to suffer deaths? It is likely to spread the infection.

The request is quite ideal and we as Malawians we need to assist the nuns who are contributing to the social , spiritual and moral support to many of us Christians . I am only perplexed with the need for a TV set . Will our bed ridden sisters find pleasure in watching TV while in bed ? Much as a patient needs some sort of entertainment , I suggest the assistances should in the first place, be directed towards PPE ‘s and food stuffs to help them build their immunity in these difficult times
