Once a nurse always a nurse …. Am always interested to see medical facilities. In 2012 we went to visit St. Elisabeth hospital in Lela. Received a warm welcome by Dr. Henry and Dr. Ciska. and were given a tour through the hospital. I was very impressed with the organisation, patient- friendly and clean environment. Were shown around all wards, out-patient clinic, operating rooms, emergency room, lab facilities and joined Dr. Henry’s class for first year nursing students – anatomy. I was invited to explain about Eco Flores to the first-year nursing students.
St. Elisabeth hospital was destroyed by the Tsunami of 1992. In 1997 Herbert van Loon travelled to Sikka to support the re-building of the hospital. Herbert founded Stichting Help! Flores in 2011 and their foundation has been supporting the hospital and surrounding communities ever since.
Visited with Zoe Pastorfield, Elivia Shaw and Loys Datang
