MCA – WCWB , Alodawpye Monastic Society, Red Cross Rakhine, 25.11. to 5.12.18
The 10th medical free of charge operation camp of German Interplast ( Luebeck Prof
Peter Sieg & Myanmar Drs ) started at Sittwe State Hospital Rakhine with the great
support of the present Rakhine Government and Rakhine Ministry of health .
Under permit of Union Ministry of Health all German specialists work with temporary
Dr s license Myanmar. Much supported by MOFA ( Berlin ).
Over 250 patients were again collected by the Alodawpye Society and Laguna Lodge
network from Sittwe and mainly North Rakhine villages and islands.
68 patients from 2017 left over , more than 100 Thyroid patients and many new cleft lip
and pallet patients .
A clear indicator that North Rakhine need much much more medical support, Myanmar &
Foreign specialist teams,—specially when considering that certain groups of Rakhine are
even not jet included in the operations and patients numbers are in the thousands just by
statistically calculations and such operations never even happened in areas as Maungdaw
– Bothitaung regions. ( Planned and and already by Union Government permitted for
November 2017 – so was needed to cancel after the 25.8.17 ARSA attacks made such
mission temporary impossible )…
The main aid s next to exchange of knowledge and capacity building in specialized medical
operations and treatment it is a ” Live Changing ” for most patients , first tie to eat normal
after a lip or pallet operation. Get back mobility again and be able to ear a living after a Burn
handicap is operated and patients can move again normal after an accident. Some Live saving
or Live extending operations as well…
Thanks to all which made this 10th medical mission ( since 2001 & mainly since 2013 ) by
German Interplast possible with the great efforts of the Rakhine Health Ministry and all
Government s previous as well present Government alike…
