What If You Can’t Afford A Doctor?

Little Jason’s parents knew he was very ill, but they had no money. How would they pay the doctor? Read Transcript


Reporter: LITTLE JASON

FROM EL SALVADOR HAD GOTTEN

VERY SICK WITH BRONCHITIS.

HIS PARENTS WERE WANTING TO

HELP HIM, BUT THEY COULDN'T

EVEN AFFORD THE BUS FARE TO

GET TO THE DOCTOR.

MY HEART BREAKS WHEN MY

KIDS GET SICK.

AND I CAN'T AFFORD THE

MEDICINE OR TO TAKE HIM TO

THE DOCTOR.

I THOUGHT MY SON WOULD DIE.

BUT I HAD NOTHING TO GIVE

HIM.

Reporter: TOGETHER THEY

MAKE ONLY ENOUGH TO BUY

FOOD, BUT NOT ENOUGH FOR

MEDICAL EMERGENCIES.

THERE ARE GOOD AND BAD

DAYS.

SOMETIMES I MAKE MONEY AND I

GO STRAIGHT TO THE MARKET TO

GET MILK, SUGAR, AND FLOUR.

Reporter: BUT TO BUY

FOOD FOR THE NEXT DAY, ANNA

KNEW SHE HAD TO KEEP

WORKING.

SO THEY ASKED JASON OS AUNT

TO WATCH HIM.

THAT VERY DAY "OPERATION

BLESSING" BROUGHT A MEDICAL

TEAM TO TOWN, AND JASON'S

AUNT TOOK THE BOY FOR

TREATMENT.

THE DOCTOR GAVE JASON A

STRONG ANTIBIOTIC, AND WHEN

ANNA RETURNED, SHE WAS

STUNNED BY WHAT SHE FOUND.

WHEN I LEFT HIM, HE WAS

SO SICK.

THEN I RETURNED AND FOUND

HIM HEALTHY.

Reporter: WITHIN TWO

DAYS, JASON HAD COMPLETELY

RECOVERED FROM THE INFECTION

IN HIS LUNGS.

TO HELP ANNA AND HER FAMILY

BRING IN A LITTLE EXTRA

MONEY FOR EMERGENCIES,

"OPERATION BLESSING" BOUGHT

THEM A NEW FOOD CART.

BUSINESS HAS BEEN GOOD.

I WANT TO THANK

"OPERATION BLESSING" FOR

EVERYTHING YOU HAVE GIVEN US.

WE HAVE A BETTER LIFE FOR

OUR FAMILY.
