Ecuador Earthquake Disaster Medical Relief Samaritan’s Purse, June 2016

Spent two weeks in Chone, Ecuador near the epicenter of the earthquake with Samaritan’s Purse’s Disaster Assistance Medical Relief Team (DART) in their Emergency Field Hospital. SP is literally saving lives…physically, mentally, & spiritually!  I performed my first appendectomy as primary surgeon in 33 years! Only 2,727 miles from home! My new DART nickname…”Hawkeye” from the “MASH” TV series! How inspiring to see where those Samaritan’s Purse shoeboxes end up going! It was a privilege to help pass them out to hundreds & hundreds & hundreds of children during Dia del niño (Day of the Child Festival) in Ecuador!!! And very moving to see the so excited & happy faces as they received them!
