The Sacrament of the Goddess
This book answers the question “What’s like to be a volunteer nurse or doctor in a poor country during or right after a civil war?”
It’s more than just a list of diseases we don’t get in USA.
It’s more than just applying a set of standards as if it was an American hospital.
It’s more than just punching a time clock for a shift and then having free time.
It’s more than just keeping the same set of assumptions that got you there.
It takes everything you have got.
And things aren’t always under control. The medical events described in the book are based on actual cases, depicting the decisionmaking as it happened.
And every volunteer ends up developing lifelong relationships – bonds of loyalty and courage that last forever.
If all this piques your interest, feel free to browse this blog and learn more about the small universe that exists in a Mission Hospital in Western Nepal…..
