Chad: Children Starve To Death As Islamic ‘Doctors’ With ‘Healing Gift From Allah’ Throw Common Sense Into The Wind

Allah apparently neglected to attend medical school …

Fox News – “MOUSSORO, Chad – On the day of their son’s surgery, the family woke before dawn. They saddled their horses and set out across the 12-mile-long carpet of sand to the nearest town, where they hoped the reputed doctor would cure their frail, feverish baby.

The neighboring town, almost as poor and isolated as their own, hosts a foreign-run emergency clinic for malnourished children. But that’s not where the family headed.

The doctor they chose treats patients behind a mud wall. His operating room is the sand lot that serves as his front yard. His operating table is a plastic mat lying on the dirt. His surgical tools include a screwdriver. And his remedy for malnourished children is the removal, without antiseptic or anesthesia, of their teeth and epiglottis…

There are now 32 clinics equipped with the latest technology to halt starvation, most within a few hours’ walk of affected families. If a child makes it to one of these centers in time, the chance of survival is remarkably high.

Yet acute malnutrition is only getting worse in the Sahel, where every year, cemeteries fill up with the bodies of children who wasted away within walking distance of help.

In 2010, 55,000 children were treated for the most acute form of malnutrition in Chad. In 2011, it was 65,000. The expected caseload for 2012 is 127,300, according to the report published in June. Overall, in the eight countries in the Sahel, the number of admissions has doubled in just three years…

Eight-month-old Abdallah Lamine had been sick for a month, but it wasn’t until he started vomiting that his parents made the trip to the medicine man, Haki Hassane…

The remedy the healer prescribes for malnourished children is the removal of the epiglottis, the tiny ball of flesh that hangs from the back of the throat, which he says ‘gets in the way of the food.’ For fever, he prescribes the removal of the child’s teeth.

In baby Abdallah’s case he prescribed both. He grabbed the baby by one arm, placed him on the mat and pinned him down. As the child began to shriek, he dug the unwashed screwdriver into the baby’s pink gums, until four tiny teeth popped out.

The healer wiped down the holes in the child’s mouth with a corner of a ratty blanket, stained with the blood of the other children he’d treated that day. Then he handed the petrified, whimpering toddler to his stone-faced mother.

Tooth extraction and the removal of the epiglottis is common in this part of Chad. Elsewhere, the treatment for diarrhea is burning the child’s anus with a rod heated over a fire…

… Already malnourished children who have their epiglottis cut can’t eat for at least a week, says health official Blague. When the child does eat, the open wound often gets infected. This worsens the malnutrition.

Because the infection can last several weeks, families believe their baby has simply contracted a different ailment. Chad’s government has never addressed these harmful practices. The issue remains extremely sensitive, in part because the healers claim their gift came from Allah …” Read more.

    Well, hells bells! Anouther example of ‘allah the compasionate!’ They must already have the much touted, Obama Care. See what we have to look forward too. I can’t wait to sigh up!

    Just another reason for Jesus to return and destroy this abominable religion of suffering and death.

    This is worse than horrible. And yet the UN is not investigating this? You can not survive without the epiglottis. You will aspirate, and die from aspiration pnuemonia. And yet the UN is silent. Amazing! This goes down in the books with the camel urine. But let’s encourage this type of culture.
