Some very simple medical procedures can save lives in many countries. Prince & Heidi Sabena welcomed a short term medical team to Uganda to provide medical care in a small village four hours away from the capital. Simple procedures they performed allowed people to see again, give hope and even live.
One 11-year-old boy had an abscess growing in the back of his throat. It was getting so full of infection that it was closing off his airway. He was dying a slow death. The doctors were able to numb it slightly with some topical anesthetic (which is all they had) lance and drain it. The boy will be fine. Something that simple saved a life!
In comparison, we have nothing to complain about. We have modern medicine for the body and the Great Physician for the soul!
