Meet Sr. Mary Ann Cruz
Karen and I took a break from the technician training and went to a small mountain village – Oriani – to meet with Sr. Mary Ann Cruz, a Philippine physician/nun who runs a small medical clinic. She is the doctor, nurse, pharmacists – all wrapped into one.
I first met Sr. Mary during my trip last April and she was clearly desperate for help. Her village is very remote and she is not twinned with a parish in the States; however, every day she sees the effects of malnutrition and bacteria infested water on the people in her community. We were able to deliver 25 complete systems to Sr. Mary, who will also now add to her list of responsibilities Gift of Water technician!
