Since 1994, when I started working in healthcare emergency services, first in the Private Sector, I came across the social and financial problems in the life of our community members. I realized that it's the right time and the right place to try and change something. In March 2003, St. Gabriel Community Services CC was born!
After 15 years of hard work and worries, I started to achieve results. Many times I fell on my knees but I always stood up one more time and this is the most important thing.
Just keep walking and trust!
I realized that I need to do more so I started thinking of a new project. My life experience (which had ups and downs) and day-to-day events helped me to add new elements to my project, giving it shape.
Luckily, I found wonderful people that listened to me and to my ideas so St. Raphael Health Recovery Clinic came to life.
After discussions with my dear friend Chico Gomes, who has already helped St. Gabriel Community Services CC by donating a fully fitted ambulance and helped the community numerous times, he agreed to finance St. Gabriel Community Services CC.
Chico has been active in the fishing industry since 1989 and he is the owner of E.L. Sea Products and Namibian Snoek Suppliers. Although he is a busy man, he was kind enough to give his time, energy and financial assistance during the development of the clinic. This was another way for him to give back and help the Walvis Bay community.
St. Raphael Health Recovery Clinic concept is based around the well-being of the community of Walvis Bay, offering care services following surgery or other significant illnesses when a patient is not able to return home.
St. Raphael Health Recovery Clinic also provides services for conditions that are best managed under supervision, such as uncontrolled diabetes, acute mental health deterioration, drugs, and alcohol addiction.
St. Raphael Health Recovery Clinic aims to provide a much needed holistic approach to care, encompassing physical, mental and spiritual health into the well-being of the patient.
The facility is accessible for wheelchairs and currently provides 13 beds with 24-hour nursing staff available on-site, healthy and balanced meals, and a clean environment.
St. Raphael Health Recovery Clinic is attended by a local medical staff that includes doctors, physiotherapists, occupational therapists, dieticians, counselors, psychologists, and spiritual pastors.
St. Raphael Health Recovery Clinic is the sister organization of St. Gabriel Community Services CC, which has served as the major provider of pre-hospital emergency services in Walvis Bay for the past 15 years.
St. Raphael Health Recovery Clinic aims to provide health care services between the hospital and the patient's home.
St. Gabriel Community Services CC d/b/a St. Raphael Health Recovery Clinic, in partnership with NAMPORT, is busy establishing the Walvis Bay Disasters Management Unit. Together with a group of private doctors, this project is planned to be completed before the end of 2018.
On Friday 09.03.2018, TWEYAPO FISHING INVESTMENT C.C. donated equipment that was needed for St. Raphael Health Recovery Clinic: 12 Leads Electrocardiographs and a Suction unit.
Thank you very much to all individuals and businesses who have the community's well-being as their number one priority.
My appreciation to St. Gabriel
Words cannot begin to express my gratitude to you Ms. Gabriela Teleman, owner of the St. Gabriel Community Services CC and founder of St. Raphael Health Recovery Clinic, together with your well-abled team of staff.
In early January this year, you selflessly heeded to a desperate call from me seeking assistance for a fellow community member in Kuisebmond who suffered from terminal breast cancer. The State institutions refused to attend to her on the premise that her condition was at an advanced stage hence left to die at home. Upon hearing my plea, you summoned me to the St. Raphael Health Recovery Clinic together with the late Ms. Maureen Petrina Kooper, who sadly succumbed to cancer on January 18th, 2018.
Thank you, Gabriela, for administering medication, observing her for a day and for having given the late Ms. Kooper dignified treatment amidst her pain and weak state. Surely when I returned to collect her from your health facility, she looked so much better, felt stronger and was able to walk on her own. Your team not only administered medication, but treated her like a human being, and that her life mattered (a human quality that greatly lacks in the majority of our state health personnel).
Although Ms. Kooper is no more, on behalf of the family, myself and everyone who assisted in making sure she felt loved during the last days of her life on earth, I wish to sincerely thank you and your team for being there every time we called on you for assistance, for being there even on January 17th, 2018 to rush her to the state hospital in Walvis Bay. It was your team at the Hospital that administered treatment while state personnel was present, it was the St. Gabriel Community Services CC oxygen supply that kept her alive, your team checked her blood pressure and ran observation tests on her in our presence. When she was handed over to the state, sadly not long thereafter she died.
May her soul rest eternally.
My prayer and wish for your organization, Gabriela, is that you be blessed, may the good Lord enlarge your territory and that of your team. Thank you for the selfless act of kindness to assist the community of Walvis Bay. I forgot to mention that you did all the above at no cost to the family. That is truly commendable and I cannot thank you enough.
Please pass my sincere thanks to the paramedics and staff at St. Raphael Health Recovery Clinic who attended to Ms. Kooper for a job indeed, well done. We are truly grateful for the courtesy and compassion showed to the late Ms. Kooper, and the family during that difficult time.
God bless you!
Cliff Shikuambi (Namport) Executive Assistant to the CEO
