The arrival of a delegation of Ecuadorian and US doctors caused a stir in Manta.
They are 50 members of the International Medical Brigade of the Hogar del Ecuador Foundation, based in Cuenca.
The mission of this team is to give medicines and medical checkups to all people who suffered damage and who are now in improvised shelters in several cantons of Manabi. They started their labor in Manta.
In this first stop they found Maritza Mero, who had poisoning symptoms after ingesting a food outside the shelter. The woman was treated by foreign doctors, who after examining and giving her the necessary medicines advised her to rest.
