Work with what you've got

Modern Art? . . . 
. . . nope, foot massager!

My previous post attempted to give you an idea of the operating rooms in Choibalsan. Throughout the hospital we were confronted with ingenious ideas that served to make up for an obvious lack of resources. We found sharps container made out of old water bottles, ICU transportation provided by patients own family, and a re-used materials foot massager that could have passed as modern art. Another lesson in creative thinking!

We could learn some things in this country about resourcefulness from some of our third world brethren before its too late.
