A prison with compassion

Post date: Feb 27, 2010 1:42:40 AM

On Wednesday, someone was brought to our home asking for help.

A sore tooth that has been ignored for one year! His cheek is swollen with a draining abscess .

The patient is doing well after having his tooth extracted and has to stay in the hospital for several days for IV antibiotics. His family does not speak the Lao language so a relative was released from prison to help the family in the hospital. Next week the patient will go home, and the relative will have to return to prison for another two years.
