Celebrating Dads Who Go Above and Beyond

Happy Father’s Day to all the incredible dads out there! 

Sunday, we celebrate the unwavering love, support, and guidance fathers provide to their children. This Father’s Day, we want to share a special story from one of our Mission Doctors that highlights the unique and vital role a father played in his child’s care.

Dr. Jim Hake, who served in rural Cameroon, encountered a young patient named Hapsatou. Three-year-old Hapsatou arrived at the hospital suffering from pneumonia, a common yet serious illness for children in the region. While Hapsatou’s high fever initially caused concern, Dr. Hake was happy to see her recovery progress quickly with IV fluids and antibiotics.

What truly struck Jim during Hapsatou’s stay was the constant presence of her father by her side. 

In Cameroon, it’s more customary for mothers or grandmothers to be the primary caregivers for children in hospitals. However, Hapsatou’s father defied tradition, staying by her bedside throughout her treatment. The love and devotion between them was evident in their smiles when Hapsatou finally recovered and was ready to return home.

Hapsatou’s story is a beautiful reminder that a father’s love knows no bounds.
