Dear friends of our mission hospital Diospi Suyana,
for four weeks our container number 32 has been stuck in customs. Despite of the assurance of the Vice-Secretary of Health to help us there is no progress.
We are bringing donations worth USD 200,000 for our hospital that is serving the poorest of the poor. In that container there are also supplies of a whole year of materials for our dental laboratory. These materials – worth USD 117,000 will allow us to offer prothetic dental work up for the indigenous of Peru.
Unfortunately we were notified yesterday that by order of the Peruvian agency "DIGEMID" approximately 40 boxes were taken away. The authorities say that some data would be missing. As so often the people who will suffer are the needy of Peru.
We want to ask you for your instant help. Please send an email in English to the Peruvian Secretary of Health (Ministra de Salud)
Ministra de Salud, Sra. Midori de Habich
Please send copies of that email to the following email-addresses:
The secretary of the Ministra de Salud
The Peruvian Vice-Secretary of Helath Dr. Jose Carlos de Carmen Sara
The President of the "Comisión de Salud" in Congress. Sr. Karla Schaefer
The director of the agency DIGEMID Sr. Pedro Luis Yarasca
Please send also a copy to:
Please be very polite but express your frustration with the Peruvian burocracy that does so much damage to its own people. Please mention the key words
Hospital Diospi Suyana and Clinica Dental
If we can send 2000 emails to these addresses within the next 10 hours, we will have a good chance of winning this struggle.
Please ask 10 of your friends to write as well. It will only take 5 minutes.
In summary: Please write one email to the Peruvian Health Secretary and send copies to four more addresses.
Yesterday we have notified the mass media of Peru. One TV-channel is already interested in investigating this case. Please help us now!! /KDJ
