ONE WAY HOME by April Fan
What is the cost of a free government-sponsored education? Tibetan children, Tashi and YuJu were chosen to study in Mainland China joining thousands of Tibetan kids in the boarding schools for only Tibetans. These boarding schools prepare them to return to Tibet as China’s new elite, but the “first class” education comes with a deep loss of identity, language and culture.
12 ER doctors on duty for a population of 430,000. They spend, on average, 3 minutes on each patient (not if you’re dying!) and get paid around $1000 monthly. Patients go home, not able to afford the treatment. Doctors carry pepper spay to work, protecting themselves from angry patients. This is what’s happening in this small-town hospital in Southeast China – one of thousands of Chinese hospitals where doctors and patients are becoming victims of the broken healthcare system.
Help us support both alumni next month!
