Yesterday, that is, August 4, 2023, happened just so
For the recognition of our blood bank type 2 we need an additional device. On the Peruvian market, it costs around USD 18,000 new. In the last few weeks, I’ve already knocked on the door of three companies on this issue. Without a tangible result. Yesterday, Friday, I finally had an appointment at “Fresenius Kabi” at 12:30. Also wieder eine Reise im Taxi von Curahuasi nach Cusco zum Flughafen und von dort im Flieger nach Lima.
Andrés Candela, who is responsible for the blood bank, remembers me from a presentation five years ago. He greets me in an extremely friendly manner. Within 30 minutes, he now receives an update. 120 images fly across a large LED screen at the front of the conference room. And we are already at the actual topic: The said device for our laboratory!
“Dr. John, a few days ago I heard about your need through a third party,” Sr. Candela says politely, “so this morning I already ordered the machine they need!” I am quite perplexed. “You know, I don’t believe in coincidences. I’ll be happy to show you my email in the computer!”
Indeed, Andrés Candela brings the said message on the screen. There it is in black and white. So the Fresenius Kabi employee had already set everything in motion before we met. In the text I even read the name of our hospital: Hospital Diospi Suyana.
As he still informs me, Diospi Suyana will receive the device free of charge. As long as we need it. “You’re doing a great job there in Curahuasi!” he says appreciatively, “I wish there were more people like you and your people!”
In the ancient book it is written, “Before they call, I will answer!” /KDJ
