Maribel is a nurse at the municipal run clinic in Palin, Guatemala: 

"I remember one lady who lives in a distant community. She came in with her son who was very sick. She called us in deep distress, she was very scared because they live so far away from a doctor. We were able to pick them up with our ambulance to bring them here to the clinic.  

The child was three years old, had a very high fever, and breathing difficulties. We suspected pneumonia and were able to stabilise him with oxygen, antibiotics and rehydration. We did a follow up and he recovered well."
