Care in the quake zone

"Whatever I do here, is not enough nor will it ever be. But I will try as will the rest of the world." – Dr. Matt Marko

 

After China's devastating earthquakes, Dr. Matt Marko and his wife traveled to the hard-hit town of Xiao ba, and set up a makeshift medical clinic to help treat survivors. "I saw a photo of seven school children all deceased and knew I had to go," he told CNN in an e-mail interview.

 

Marko sent photos of the shattered region to iReport.com and described the difficult conditions survivors face. His seven-person team treated hundreds of patients in the days following the quake -- many for fractures, contusions, lacerations, dislocations, dehydration and some malnutrition. Marko is one of the few Western psychiatrists practicing in China and says many residents will be under severe psychological strain once the shock wears off. He says he gave children in the camp little jobs to take their minds off of the situation.

 

Marko's story is one of many from iReporters whose lives were affected by the earthquakes in China. You can read more here .
