Gilead’s Hope
Dear Friends, Gilead’s Hope 2017 Year End Report Greetings from New Braunfels, Texas. I recently returned from another 3 months treating hundreds of poor Cambodian patients and teaching over 20 family practice residents and senior medical students in the Sonja Kill Memorial Hospital in Kampot, Cambodia. The young physicians in training are progressing well. Several graduated and stayed on as junior faculty, so I’m not required to oversee the exam and treatment plan of every patient like the years before. I get fewer calls, so able to sleep at night. I am more alert to research and teach on the difficult cases during regular hours. We average over 120 outpatients per day, including emergency and inpatients. We begin morning rounds on the inpatients at 7:30 am and finish at 5 pm, or when the last patients leave the clinic. I am often presented with destitute patients who can be cured, but they are unable to afford the diagnostic tests or treatments. Many get by on just $2 - $3 per day for their entire family. They are hopeless and desperate and come to us in tears. What a privilege when I tell them that through your contributions to Gilead’s Hope, I can pay for their treatment. They are overcome with joy. Thanks be to God! I wish you each could be here to experience their gratitude. Read more
