Horse Cart on Medical Journey

Warnes, Santa Cruz Department, Bolivia
10 Kudos
Methods of travel around rural Bolivia varied; here it was on a horse cart for a trip of a couple of hours to a rural village. But as we were headed for home, we came across a man roadside with a very sick daughter. We offered him a ride to the nearest clinic, about an hour away. When you are in a pioneer village far from facilities, medical services cannot be taken for granted. We were able to make it in time for the baby to get a life saving (at least for the time being) blood transfusion, and reminded how much on the edge life can be in such a place, before continuing our journey to town.
