THE STORY:

Terry Raskauskas wrote -

We are Advance Practice Nurses, nurses and students doing primary care in the Dominican Republic. We see the poorest of the poor in the ghettos, locally called bateys. Bateys are shanty villages that developed along side the sugar cane plantations. Most homes are shacks usually of tin or wood scraps, most commonly with no water or electricity. We create our own "clinic cubicals" to see patients using sheets hanging from wire strung across the inside of the poor churches. In one weeks time we usually see about 5000 people. Often, there are children with recent burns from candles falling off tables onto their little legs. Lice, scabies and stomach parasites are other common problems. We do what we can with supplies we bring with us from the States. Please support our Medical Mission and be as generous as your budget allows. Your donation here helps with our next Medical Mission, January 8- 14, 2012.  For more information about the Foundation for Peace go to their website:   www.foundationforpeace.org
