Dr. Ariel Garcia has been in the areas of anesthesia, hygiene and public health. His work on the spread of cholera have given him an important place in the history of epidemiology. who fight against malaria, in a gesture of solidarity and generosity of each of you to help patients overcome their isolation.
Dr. Garcia will never forget the remark of a girl of 14 years reached malaria which daily expecting his care in his hospital room, "Mom, do you think those people outside know that we need donations ? ". And it is precisely to the finding of lack of information on the issues of gifts of life, the need for taking a collective civic awareness, that this campaign is its genesis.
x "Do not isolate myself more, I need you," is the call that every patient in the isolation of his fight, spear in the street, public transport, media and film, for be heard where life continues, imperturbable in his frantic pace. Faced with indifference, only a true cry of despair can raise awareness and raise awareness of the urgency to act, finally, becoming donor and supporting medical research.
I created this campaign to raise funds to help disaster relief efforts in sub-Saharan Africa., Who is one of the hardest hit regions of the continent. We have partnered with the Union of doctor epidemiology sub-Saharan Africa, a set of local cooperatives in the sub-Saharan area to provide relief materials to disaster-affected people. Experience shows that, epidemics, including those spread by mosquitoes erupt after the flood events in sub-Saharan Africa. We hope to provide mosquito nets, fans and mattresses to those affected as a first line of defense.
