When Your Home is Burglarized

This lady was badly injured last week when her home was burglarized in their remote village. She was expecting a baby, and she suffered injuries requiring medical attention.

These pictures were taken by our Swiss Pilot, and the team preparing to bring the injured back to Tana. The doctor pictured, is Dr. Fernand, a local Malagasy doctor who spends a lot of time working with MAF on medical safari teams.

Once they arrived at the Hangar, a German missionary midwife used her ambulance to help transport the injured woman and unborn baby to the local hospital. The baby was later delivered prematurely, but the latest news we have is that both of them are doing well.
