A Daisy Witness

MENA stories short March 14, 2023

A critical care nurse in one of the most prestigious hospitals in a closed country in MENA was recently surprised when she was given the hospital’s D.A.I.S.Y. Foundation Award, a highly-coveted professional honor sponsored by an internationally-recognized foundation with 3,000 participating hospitals.

The award recognizes nurses who are exceptional in expressing compassion and care to their patients. It highlights the kindness, personal investment, and sensitive witness of one nurse in MENA who has  impacted thousands of patients and colleagues in the Middle East for over 20 years.

Her response to the compliment is measured though; a professional award is not an achievement to her.  It is only a byproduct of her daily, constant prayer that God will use her in every situation. “I am just thankful the Lord can work through me, in me. I am humbled by the unique opportunities He has given me. I love my work. I love my patients. I love Jesus, and sometimes I even tell people so!”
