Carmen is 40 years old and through poverty has suffered with a thyroid problem for over 12 years…

Bahay ng Pag-Asa paid for tests and provides the medicines and believe it or not iodized salt!
(the poor do not buy iodized it is more expensive than ordinary salt).
Within a couple of weeks of treatment the condition started to improve
and Carmen feels like a new woman.

Part 2

Carmen’s goitre did not respond to the medication she had been
prescribed and Dr Jade decided it was necessary to operate, which
he did and very successfully.

Carmen has made a full recovery and often shows her appreciation
to Bahay ng Pag-Asa for providing her medications and surgery.
