My name is Carol Wishcamper. My husband Joe and I are proud sponsors of the My Tho trip this year. This is my first exposure to an Interplast trip, and I don’t have an emotion or a nerve ending that hasn‘t been touched today. When I walked into the courtyard at 7:00am, I saw hundreds of people already waiting, some of whom had walked for hours and hours, even days, to get here. Little children were running forward with their mothers running behind them. Some mothers pushed their children forward so that we could see their child’s deformity, and other mothers rushing forward to pull their eager children back. The contrast of that with the solemnity of the greeting from our hosts at the hospital, with tables set up like the U.N., speeches of welcome and thanks from both sides, and lots of official ceremony, was quite stark.
