I was VERY impressed with the health care teams and their ideas. They struggle with so many cultural customs that are difficult to change. A local "traditional healer" is brought in almost daily per requests of patients...but they make him wear a "lab coat" over his medicine man garb. I have included his picture, as we also paid a visit to him. The hosp has also built an traditional kitchen so families can come and cook their food for their relatives in the hosp. They bring their own firewood and traditional food.
When talking to the PR director, she found out we were from Seattle and the land of Mr. Gates. Could we please contact him and tell him of their efforts and ask him for assistsnce? Well. Why not? They said they have actually tried to do that but, have had no success, so since we live by him, and maybe know him ( hahhahha) maybe we could talk to him! I gave them a small donation and told them I would do my best. Long shot, but I will write a letter.
