Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - May 4, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa Medical Help for Korea The Cedar Rapids Gazette: Sat., May 4, 1974 Most Of tho HNI daily patients at J(mhir I’young clinic in centi Hi Korea are timid, embarrassed and fearful Mary knoll Sister Anna Ho-land, a Strawberry Point native, the director and usually the only doctor present, knows their fears reflect physical and financial worries. “Who will care for tin* chil dren if I get sick?” they ask “How will we support ourselves if I can’t bring in the crops?” “Where will we find the money if our child must have an operation?” “I* there really a cure for snakebite, boils and worms?” When Maryknoll clinic began in 195(5, the rural area had no doctor. However, Korea's medical facilities have improved for those who can afford them. Today four doc tors make a comfortable living in the little village down thi* hill. Farmers' Lot Wo rsened Hut the lot of Korean farmers has worsened in relation to the general well-being of a nation striving to industrialize Most of the people in the area avoid doctor bills if at all possible. ‘ ‘ E v e n the clinic’s all-inclusive fee is troublesome at times,, for both patient and doctor,” said the Rev. Angelo Sister Anna Boland, Strawberry Point native, examines a child with an unsightly birthmark on her face, which will be corrected by skin grafting. Montuori, the local pastor. “An ailing farmer will begin to feel improved after a few visits. Concerned at even the clinic’s low fee, he’ll quit coming. Hut some months later he’s forced by the same illness to return and the cycle begins all over again.” The clinic is known especially for its treatment of heart and kidney diseases as well as children's ailments. Communicable d i s e a s e s, snakebites and serious burns requiring skin grafts also are common among patients. Dedicated Women The Maryknoll Sisters, who sponsor the clinic, are a community of religious women dedicated to a life of service in the missionary work of the church overseas and in the US Of the 1,100 sisters in the community, 725 serve in 22 countries of Africa, Asia, Latin America and the Central Pacific. The clinic no longer treats tuberculosis, Korea’s most prevalent disease. “One of the nurses and I spend a half-day each week at the city health center examining tuberculosis patents,” explains Sifter Anna. “This amounts to a community service donation on our part. The patients are far too numerous and the treatment too prolonged for us to handle effectively. Moreover, the Korean government conducts tuberculosis programs. Instead of competing, we participate in their efforts.” Earned Degree Sister Anna attended Strawberry Point public schools and earned an MN from Mercy school of nursing in Cedar Rapids prior to her entrance into Maryknoll in 1949 She received a bachelor of science degree from Hood Counsel college, White Plain*, N Y. and an MI) from the University of St. Ixiuis school of medicine in 1962. She won a fellowship for foreign study from Smith, Kline and French and spent three months at the Maryknoll hospital in Pusan, Korea. Sister Anna served her interns!, p at St. Vincent’s hospital, New York City, and completed a two-year surgical residency at Carney hospital, Boston. She was assigned to Korea in 19(55 after Korean language study at Yonsei university in Seoul. She has been at the Maryknoll clinic at Pyeong in central since. Clinic Staff Reflections on Day of Prayer Last Tuesday was proclaimed by congress as a National Day for Humiliation, Fasting and Prayer. Here are the thoughts of one person who tried to observe the day as the planners intended. Tuesday, April 30. I was dreading this day, but for some reason, I knew I would go through with it. Perhaps I was shamed by knowledge that thousands have died for their faith and that most of the world goes to bed hungry every night. Surely, at the very least, I could go without food for one day. I felt almost guilty, asking God to give me strength to do this thing. But I know how weak I am and I know He does too. Reminders My head is aching and I feel nauseous and dizzy. It occurs to me that frustration has been a more irritating companion today than hunger. Reminders of food were con stant. I feel a twinge of disgust now at the importance I have given to what is more pleasurable habit than physical need. It is 7:15 p.m. and I am beginning to waver. In only one hour and 45 minutes it will be 24 hours since I had my last bite of solid food. Is that long enough for this unfamiliar form of self-discipline to do its work? Do I really have to see it through until morning? Prayer Part of the day I spent in prayer, mostly for myself rather than the country in general because I believe the “self” must change before there is any real hope for the nation. I also read the letters of Peter who had some encouraging words to offer on enduring hardship. It is almost embarrassing to admit — maybe because it seems so arrogant — that tonight I think I am more aware of one aspect of Christ’s death on the Cross. And that is that it was done willingly. Just as easily as I could end my discomfort by walking to the refrigerator, Christ could have called down legions of angels to end His suffering. Contrasted with His sacrifice, mine seems paltry and frivolous. Tonight it is more clear to me than ever how little is asked of us here in the United States, in Cedar Rapids, in my own comfortable neighborhood. How insulated we are from hardship. I can shrug off the protests of my pampered body now because I know I am doing this to myself and I can end it at any time. I realize I know little of real suffering. My children were well fed today, well clothed and well protected. I am spared the heartache of millions of the world's parents who watch their little ones go to sleep crying and hungry, perhaps hurt or cold. I thank God, but it doesn’t seem like enough. Jeong Korea With Sister Anna, the clinic staff of 26 now includes four Maryknoll Sisters who are registered nurses, a Korean doctor on a part-time basis, two Korean nurses and 12 aides, plus office staff and caretakers. The Korean doctor directs a mobile unit from the clinic’s automobile. Twice a week a public health team makes trips through the farming area in which an estimated 200,000 people live. Sister Anna said, “Medical care is available for those who can pay for it today. Why should I be downtown treating a wealthy woman with a headache when I can be here caring for a little farm girl with a bone disease.” Gazette Photos bv John Mclvor fhe Mf.

But put the three together and let a church present it and you have a new twist. The First Presbyterian church of Mt. Vernon has formed a group called The John Calvin Players and has put together a variety show with a western theme. Buffet Dinner “A Dinner Theater: Go West First Pres”, presented Thursday and Friday, will also be presented tonight following a 6.30 western style buffet dinner in the fellowship hall of the church. Members of the congregation not only make up the Calvin Players, but they also made the costumes, worked out the acts and prepare the dinner. Raise Money The purpose of the dinner theater is to raise money for the church's trip to Wellpinit. Wash., to work June 29 to July 13 in the Lake Roosevelt Ministry, four Spokane Indian churches.
