Thread: Re: Their killing my kids...
Date Posted: 2004-02-21 23:49:10
Ive got one week left to got til I fly outta here so I spose I should let you know the latest on my human rights abuse story.
Ive spent the last couple weeks hanging out in the hospital with the kids that survived the 8 hours of torture at the ahdns of their supervisor. The story is phenominal and it gets more complex by the day. Everyone has there own points of veioew of what happend during the inmcident and in the subsequent 2 weeks and none of them match up. So ive decide not to belive anyone except the kids and even then I have to be aware of how well they know how to play me. For all my efforts I think that the only 2 achievable things that I might be able to get done in the next week is to try and get one of the kids broken wrist into a plaster and to get a doctor to treat the other kids internal bleeding (niether of which has been treated through out a 10 day staty in the hospital, jointly due the deptartment being slow to pay medical bills and the hospitals inability to give proper treatment.) Its a situation which has blown me away and Im kinda glad to be walking away from, cos to fix something like this will take years, and this is just one problem in a whole country of problems.
Im probably not giving particularly useful info at the moment so Ill save it up til I get back to England and have a chance to put my brain back together and compose something a little more comprehensive... Gemma
