LIG GLOBAL FOUNDATION - Worldwide Medical Missions
For the past few years I have been following an amazing group of doctors and nurses that helps educate and train medical staff around the world. They all volunteer under the non-for-profit "LIG Global Foundation" and share their experience from their home hospitals in the USA, The Philippines and India.
Every mission is focused on one or few problems that area that they visit is struggling with the most. I closely observed uterus removals, various laparoscopic gynecological surgeries and a Cesarean Section. I watched doctors give full checkups and ECG for Rheumatic Heart Disease to over 1000 kids in a village boarding school for impoverished families. I've seen first-hand how important it is for nurses to have a routine for every surgery. And I've also seen how little is needed to put a big smile on kids' faces when we replaced their everyday meals with some simple but new dishes that on a long run could improve their health.
