The second in our series:
Welcome to our second Testimonies of Love email! We were pleased to receive positive feedback from many of you last week and we are excited to continue sharing these weekly, uplifting testimonies with you. We hope that these simple emails continue to bring you love and joy.
“Spread love everywhere you go. Let no one ever come to you without leaving happier.” – Mother Teresa
At AMS we know that providing all of our services with love makes a significant difference. This week we are holding a focus group discussion with our youth patients to measure the impact made by providing services with love and dignity. AMS youth patients belong to a special and unique member-led program called Victors Club. Many of our youth have expressed the transformative and motivational power of participating in a group where they can share their experiences, challenges, and victories with their peers. Members of the Victors Club work in unison to build a loving and supportive atmosphere – creating a strong and healthy family.
“[The role of the Victors Club] has been really big, because it makes me accept who I am and know that I have a future ahead. It gave me hope and helped me to live positively.” – Victors Club Youth Leader and AMS Patient
“At AMS, [my doctor] is an example of someone who has treated me with dignity. She gave me time when I had clinic appointments and also gave me a seat in her office. She made me feel loved and that I have value. When someone sees value in you it makes you see value in yourself and your life.” – Victors Club Youth Leader and AMS Volunteer and Patient
**The idea for Testimonies of Love was born out of AMS’ daily morning staff meetings. Every morning, before the clinic opens, staff members gather to share time, testimonies, prayer, song, laughter, and love. Sitting among the staff members you hear testimonies of love and world-class medical care from across our different departments: from rubber glove balloons that make children smile at the laboratory to deep, trusting conversations conferred in the youth wing. At AMS every day begins on a foundation of love for one another.
Best wishes until next week,
Dr. Pasquine N. Ogunsanya and the AMS Family
