Visits: 9,783 - Children's Lives Saved: Uncountable

Dear Friends,

Our metrics tell us that nearly 10,000 visits have been made to our telemedicine system dedicated to providing refugees and their caregivers with modern medical information.  But numbers are just numbers.  In fact, we know that one physician who thought he was dealing with a serious abdominal condition requiring surgery found that he had only to treat for IBS.  We also learned that several children in danger of pellagra were pretty much cured by reference to our IMCRA dietician's modules.  Perhaps most dramatically. a minor surgery was successfully performed where no surgery would have been undertaken without the information and guidance provided by IMCRA's Dr. Maher Suede.

This is the magic of the IMCRA system.  the knowledge and the help is there around the clock, 24/7 in the language of the people who need it.  The only impediment is how many modules we can load, on how many medical issues facing the refugees and thereir caregivers.

And that is where you come in.  Your kind support will enable us to not only reach thousands more who are desperately in need, but to also expand the knowledge base so that IMCRA is an ever more valuable life-saving and life-giving resource.

 

Thsnk you.
