Watch "Tragedy averted: 15 year old Samuel saved" on YouTube

Samuel, a 15-year-old boy who came to CHAMA invasion with his mother to volunteer. In the middle of the night on the second day, I was woken up by Pastor Jacob saying "this boy is dying... he is visibly shaking".

At a close examination, his eyes were already pale and he was getting cold from the feet. PCV test was carried out. PVC is a full blood count test that is used to estimate the need for certain blood transfusions and monitor the response to treatment.

The result showed that he was severely anemic with less than 11% blood. A volunteer, warrior Moses from the Umuahia chapter volunteered and donated 1 pint of blood and Sam underwent a blood transfusion. He fully was revived and handed back to her mother.

In the video below, CHAMA CEO was seeing Sam and his mother off on a motorbike on their way back to their home.

There shall be no loss. You cannot lose your life in the service of others. Do not be afraid to serve. "Whoever finds their life will lose it, and whoever loses their life for my sake will find it." (Math 10:39).
