    Clearly the universal free health care provided by the government isn't working.

    Oh wait....

    Nevermind.

    But true... it's not only about health care, but education also.

    I work with a 27 year old man, who is unhealthy to the point he had a heart attack (or stroke, not sure which) recently and had to have exploratory surgery. He has done nothing we can see to change his life style. In fact, him and his 18 year old GF are expect there second child they conceived 7 months after their first.

    And this example is someone that was raised in the USA until his late teens.

    This is especially true if you are out of the DR and your novia needs some spending money. Sick mother, or her brother is in jail because he had a traffic accident. Western Union is alive and well in the DR.

    Clearly Josemexicano, it is a disturbing thing. Of course the only funny side is the amazing amount of sick mamas and Papas of Sankies but the truth is that there really are numerous Dominican elderly that are sick with high blood pressure and diabetes among other things.
    The diet of many white starches and not enough greens and fruits contributes to high sugar but most of all it is the poverty which does not allow them to be continually medicated. Simple generic meds keep BP and Sugar under control easily but without money, well....
    Great Grandma and two Great Aunts of my child have both diabetes and HBP and cant afford to follow the correct diet, they eat what they have and that's usually yuca and platanos. They don't take pills daily as needed and suffer for their inability to buy meds. It's a real problem for the poor.

    A sick parent is a better excuse then the girls in Thailand use. "My family's water buffalo just died and we can't harvest any food and we are all going to starve to death!"

    Sadly, in our case, they don't depend on foreigners. They just suffer day to day. Their children who work give them what they can but it's not enough to buy the pills, they just go without.
    Yes all the Sankie stuff is funny and at times ridiculous but there are very real problems for people who haven't got a Spankyette.
