Peru – David’s new House

November 18, 2007 - Peru

by Steve Henrichon

Doctor David is still living in the tent city with the newborn baby.  Living in a Coleman backpacking tent is not a very healthy environment for a 2-week old baby.  It was Martina (our CEO) who didn’t even hesitate before suggesting that we assume the cost for an apartment for a couple months to get the baby out of the cold.  On Sunday, we moved David and his family into a fully furnished apartment in Pisco.

Having the flexibility to offer this option to David and his family made me very proud to be part of Real Medicine.  This is important.  David would never have even thought to ask us, yet we took the initiative to help care for his family.  He has been instrumental in the implementation of the clinic and this is the least we can do.  It was then that I realized that not only are we impacting the community through our work in the clinic, but we are significantly impacting the lives of our employees and their families by involving them in our project.
