English translation by PulseWire member Aurore

I visited one day one of my neighbours, just to see how she was doing. She is the mother of approximately 10-11 children and they were almost all sick. The father is unemployed and the mother is carrying packages on her back. She had only two aspirin tablets and she was cutting them into little pieces to share betwen all her children. I went around to ask people to help this mother and her children. Unfortunately, everybody here is in the same situation of poverty. And going to the hospital in our country is very expensive. So if you don't have much money, you'd better stay – and die – at home. Thanks.

This is so sad

Dear Anuciata, Thank you for enlightening us on the health situation in your country. This is very sad about the health care system and how people are easily dying because of the lack of medical attention. I am so sorry about the woman and her children. I just want to know if there is any red cross or doctors without borders in your country who can assist with this situation. There is a lot that needs to be done in terms of advocacy all of you as citizens have a right to health care. Please bring out more of these stories so that we help you advocate for good health care systems in your country. Stay blessed and hope to hear from you soon my sister
