Save the Hospital or Rather the Patients
Organized by: virginia burg
We need nelp for our local hospital. It is located in Contaman, Peru. We are very poor and have no specialists. We would need some to come and teach us. We have a couple of trained Drs. and me. I am specialized in plant medicine. We have had to perform emergency operations last week. there was no plane to get the people to Pucallpa. It was our fist time operating. The one was a cecearen section. It was the womanies 7th children. It was a breach birth and very fat. I thought I would faint. We only had a mixture of alcohol and datura plant for the anethesia. We had a couple of clean towels to sop up the blood. It was as professional as possible. She survived although her scar is a bit big. I eneded up doing the stitching as the Dr. was not able to. I am glad that I have done a lot of handcrafts as they were a bit regular then. The second one was an appenditicitis. We did not have money for the plane. So we had to do it ourselves otherwise the man would have died. He survived! We had an accident in the village. A man fell into a hole and was coverd with dirt and sand. we pulled him out. his lungs were bursting. We probably needed to perform a tractomy (placing a hole in his throat to enable him to breathe) but we could not. We lacked the knowledge, and the tools. We also were more afraid here as if we did not do it very exacting, he would have died. We should have tried as he died anyhow. The entire village is sad. I sent them my apologies but I was just too scared to set the knife. And now I feel repsonsible. We had another birth. The baby is born dead. Here you can watch a video. https://www.facebook.com/tradplantmedicine It is only for strong stomachs. You see how the Dr. has only a normal t-shirt on and normal sneakers. Als not all of them have surgeon gloves on. This is our reality. Help us change it . We would use the money to pay two surgeons, one gynocologist and one Dr. of Internal Medicine to come here for one year to teach us. This way we could perhaps be better equipped to help. I would love to be able to place a card under the towns Christmas tree witht he announcement that we have funds to pay these Drs. It would be a blessing for many many people. I cannot place a foto or anything as I cannot download things. we only have internet sometimes. Many thanks for this site existing and making a request easy. there are many others but they are too complicated for us. We send in the meantime much light out into the world and would like to remind people that the holiday time is a time of peacefulness. It is a time of strength and beauty. It is a time to rejooyce with the family. It is a time of heralht, happiness and bliss.
