My wife Debbie suffered the misfortune of something called an ectopic pregnancy. She faced the obvious loss of a potential child, depression, physical restraints and her very own mortality, spending weeks worrying whether her insides could rupture leading to potential. My wife and I are in the lucky side of humanity who either have public health in our home country, or who can afford private health insurance and/or treatment. In my subsequent research I found a host of pregnancy related illnesses to both women and the newly born. I also found statistics showing (the obvious!...) that my wife was indeed very safe due to the luxury position we find ourselves in comparision to 85% of the world who have no direct access to medical care. Laos is one of SE Asias biggest energy contributors yet suffers massively as a result of UXO that humbles the nations development. Laos Friends Hospital for Children was set up after the success of the hospital in Angkor aiming to treat children of Cambodia in similarly underprivileged positions. The aim of this hospital was to treat 1000 children each month. They in fact treat (to date) an average of 55 children per day thus reaching over 1500 treated children per month. The hospital also implements outreach programs to teach children and families health promotion and disease prevention practices.
