This morning we're on our way to Cure International, an organization here in Santo Domingo, to try and see if they have the means to help mom with the surgery. Hopefully they can. After that we might try to go back to the Jamani border, a six hours drive, which the previous doctor disagreed with and warned us about moving too much because of her condition. I feel we might not have choice if the Cure International can't help us.
Anyway, wish us luck.
Coffy and his parents are now staying in a motel in Santo Domingo.
Unfortunately Cure International would not treat her, and now Yakini is in touch with "Partners in Health organization" to arrange for a ride to the border.
In a parallel effort, it may be possible that she will be accepted at a hospital in Santo Domingo called Hospital General de la Plaza de la Salud. It's a big general hospital that has been taking Haitian patients.
