Perhaps that was the scenario when the lepers were asking Jesus to heal them. They must have been in pain, crying for help like her. And perhaps the only free medication for them is to turn to Jesus with faith.
She was admitted that day because the doctor discovered that she had a pulmonary problem. The parents were also told to bring their baby to the clinic every other Friday for medication apart from her skin problem. And so our journey begins.
Sometimes it is hard to say and judge the kind of society we have. I sometimes also wonder about this group of people who were deprived from health privileges not because they cannot work in order to provide good health for their children or for themselves, but because of the kind of society they are in. This experience had challenged me again and again to be more compassionate with the little ones - the destitute in the society whoever they are. I am just thankful that we have generous people around who continue to help these people. Now, I am very happy to see finally this little tiny one on her fifth Friday fully recovered from her skin problem and praying that she will also recover from her other ailment in time. I will always remember the day I met her, the day I met Gangga.
