Filipino Doctor in Sri Lanka

My Sri Lanka and Indonesia trips were both sad and wonderful experiences for me. Although I had treated many patients this work has also healed my struggling Christian spirit witnessing the sufferings of humanity and encouraged by the zeal and dedication of my co-workers in Christ. I also realize that we are more blessed than those people who suffered so much losing their material things, their loved ones, and traumatized by the memories of such an unforgettable event.
In Sri Lanka, I witnessed those children who draw pictures of horrible stories and went crazy running away in different directions when somebody falsely announced that another tsunami is coming. Children who became fatherless or motherless, parents who lost their children or the whole family was totally wiped out from the face of the earth.  But as we treated those patients we still would see the smiles on their faces, a flicker of hope, as we extended our hands of compassion and showed to them that there is one up there who cares for them.  Dr. Sam Cariaga
