There is a lot happening at Bethesda when the patients get together. Because of their chronic wound most of them have become shy in social situation. However, at Bethesda the patients share their common experiences and there is no more isolation, friendship and camaraderie develop. After a few days together, you hear a lot of teasings and laughters among the patients. They share life and encourage one another toward their recovery.
There is more than physical healing taking place during they stay at Bethesda. Many patients are coming back after their healing, just to visit, because they miss their friends and the atmosphere. It is really a refuge for them.
