Here are some photos from our Faithcare medical outreach mission in Kafanchan Diocese last week. Photos were taken by Dr. Gabriel, an anesthetist with whom we have worked for many years. While looking at the surgery photos, be aware that all of our surgeries are done under local anesthetic. The patients are awake while their finger is being amputated or their appendix is being removed.
Wherever there is a crowd, entrepreneurial children arrive to sell food and drink.
This is the foot of a young woman (about 30) with a cancerous growth. She is going to have most of her leg amputated. She came to our free medical outreach in October. Why didn't she go to the doctor before now? She didn't have the money.
This year, we helped 20,000 people like her. Help us help them by sending your tax deductible contributions to Kateri Medical Services at 11 Church Street Tariffville, CT 06081
We all count it an honor and privilege to serve as a medium towards making others smile through this great family faithcare medical team.
