Dear Madam, dear Sir, dear friends and dear families,
Disease due to poverty. Sometimes, we are called to meet cases of sick, injured, disabled people who exceed all in terms of tragedy. When wealth is not shared, that’s one of the possible consequences!
We have long hesitated to show you this movie or not, realized and produced by the foundation, during one of our medical healthcare day-visits to this 39 years old woman. We have hesitated for many reasons: The harshness of the images, the pain of this woman, the distress of this family and the lack of everything they suffer. And then, with the agreement of her family, the agreement of the people who make up the medical team of the Foundation, we have chosen in full awareness to show you this document. Indeed, we believe that it must be seen by many people as possible so that such situations can no longer happen again (dreaming is still allowed isn’t?). We do not wish to communicate on the medical diagnosis of this person, but on the other hand, we can tell you in a few lines her history. But beforehand, we tell you that this audiovisual document presents scenes likely to shock, therefore we warn you, especially children.
Her history: This woman became ill about ten years ago, one of those diseases that require a proper medical treatment, and that most people heal quickly. But, nothing is comparable here, everything is different. I, we, you, when we get sick, we go to the doctor, he will makes tests and make a diagnosis that we hope to be correct. Then a consistent medical treatment is put in place and if this treatment does not respond well or is not effective, the medical team will then propose an alternative, so that things move in the right direction. If we suffer, then we will take painkillers, and if hospitalization is necessary, then we will be hospitalized, to receive care 24/24h.
But that’s what happens when the wealth is only too little shared: This family, this woman then aged thirty, without any financial resources, because of a very modest family -who can also be called very poor family-, didn’t know, could not receive help. Even worse, people here don’t know where to go to get free medical care. No money = no medical care… So let’s die then!
The movie – Be informed that this media contains scenes that may shock
This woman has never been able to go to see a doctor, she has never received an adapted medical treatment to treat her illness of that time, never this woman has received painkillers, never this woman was hospitalized and never some person in charge of anything, didn’t come to offer help or an alternative solution, as simple as it is!!! Today, this woman suffers from the consequences of her illness. She has been in bed for over 10 years, she has never been able to get up, walk, or go out, and she has never received (or very rarely) medical care at home except us. Her physical condition is extremely alarming, the pains are unbearable, inhuman, intolerable. Personally, I had never seen such a case in more than 25 years of nursing practice, except perhaps in some horror films… But it was only cinema.
You know, in order to treat her gaping wounds, this woman has been taking antibiotics for years. While the top priority was to treat his wounds invasively. But no, just antibiotics! And that’s of course all wrong.
Now, it’s late, it’s too late, and this woman will not be cured anymore, but we can help her. This is what the Fair Future Foundation do and has been putting in place for some time now, and try to keep it thanks to you all. We offer medical care, appropriate treatment, painkillers, treat these wounds, we offer them basic food, dietary supplements, vitamins. We share what we get. You can read this article here about sharing wealth in Bali also.
Note that this type of case is far from isolated, medical care is not a right here, but a luxury. We have money, so we can get treatment. The distribution of wealth in this region where personal and often illegal profits are legion is more a legend that a fact, and it shocked us very much to realize that things like this still happen. We are all responsible, and we must all act together to help those left behind by society.
