Med mission last December 18-19, 2012 in Kinablangan and Ban-ao was sponsored by Tzu Chi Foundation Zamboanga. The med mission catered to more or less 600 patients. The Tzu Chi doctors did check up, cleaned/stitched wounds, injected TT, and helped 5 babies from severe dehydration.

the girl did not realize that her finger got cut off during the typhoon. All the while thinking it just got infected until the Tzu Chi doctors treated her.
the old woman’s husband patiently stands at the back while his wife is waiting to be treated. I wonder what he is thinking knowing his wife (the lady on the right), compared to the lady on the left, bears a larger, graver open wound on the head.
most of patients in the med mission that has open gaping wounds in the head are women in their 50’s and 60’s
