El Salvador is green and lush, withbeautiful white herons nesting inthe trees and volcanoes with lakes thatform inside the craters. It is also a countryof abject poverty, where people withmedical ailments wait for months oryears to get treated.
"People living in the mountains donot have telephones, but somehowword got out that we were coming,"said Dr. Dan Jacob of the New OrleansMedical Mission Services. "A petitegirl of 10 had brought her brother,who had a tumor in his neck, to seeme. The boy had cerebral palsy andwas unable to walk. His sister carriedhim down the mountains on her back,which was a two-day trek from her villageto our mission site."
The boy is one of several thousandpatients Jacob and his team of morethan 400 volunteers have treated. Todate, New Orleans Medical MissionServices has been on 12 missions, performed862 surgeries, performed12,615 eye exams and dispensed17,057 pairs of eyeglasses, Jacob said.The group maintains a 9,000-squarefootwarehouse for medical suppliesand equipment that is sent all over theworld.
Jacob began the New OrleansMedical Mission Services in 2001 afterreturning from a "frustrating" trip toMexico.
"A longtime friend and patient, FredMikill, came in and we started discussingmy medical mission experiences," hesaid. "Fred had recently retired from alarge company that did business in LatinAmerica and suggested that we start ourown organization."
Jacob routinely performs facialreconstructions on accident victimswhose faces are grossly malformed."Manufacturers in the U.S. donateplates of varying sizes, and we have justthe right medical hardware for the casesthat present themselves, with none tospare," he said. "It is so astounding that Ican only attribute this to divine providence."Jacob grew up in Cape Girardeau, Mo.,and went to medical school at TulaneUniversity.
"My father, who died in an ambulanceaccident when I was quite young,was a doctor," he said. "I guess I wantedto follow in his footsteps."
