Hunger and Worry

By Marg Kutz

I have been thinking about something a midwife told Jean and me last week. She said that anemia is a problem here. It is due to ulcers. When asked she said ulcers come as a result of hunger and worry. We in first world countries often think people in developing countries have adapted to scarcity and hunger, that somehow it doesn't bother them. I think it helps us take some of the sting out of the fact that parents can't feed their children. But this local midwife's statement tells me otherwise. Hunger and worry.
