Sorry to hear about this tragedy, especially as it involves kids. Prayers enroute. And thank you for helping them.
On solutions ideas:
Have you tried getting in touch with a few Embassies there? Say British, & American, as well as others? In addition to NGO agencies which handle overseas medical
emergencies, amongst other thing. - Red Cross, Doctors Without Borders, etc.
Also, try & find out if there are any allied
military units, ships, or bases within a few hundred miles. They of course have medical resources, as well as transport options (local, and LOOONG Distance). And sometimes help simply because it's the right thing to do.
Who knows, you might get lucky & find out that there's a British Naval Hospital Ship (with helo's onboard) 20 miles away.
Getting the press on your side in terms of finding the proper help can go a BIG way towards leveling roadblocks & getting help onsite quickly. Or transport if appropriate.
And I mean big, international, Western Press.
It's a lot easier to do nowadays, given the internet
, plus all of our instant communications
And it's a long shot, but odds are there are some allied
Military Contractors in the area. As to their willingness to help, & or at what cost, I'd be purely guessing. But I doubt it could hurt to try.
Also, they would have a MUCH higher chance of knowing what specific resources which I've mentioned, would be in the area.
Oh, & try and tap into the Cruisers Networks in the region. A lot of MD's, PA's, & Nurses etc. go cruising. Like in a much higher percentage than you'd find in the general population. (Ditto on vacation
travel networks, odds are there are high end Medical Professionals on vacation
in the vicinity).
Also, if there's a Chaplain of most any denomination in the fleet, even if he/she's no longer practicing, they'll know who to call (guaranteed).
I'm not fully up to speed on how Cruisers Networks work right now, given how fast comms tech. changes any more. But high tech stuff aside, VHF
, Ham, & SSB
is likely still very viable, given that you can have a Huge number of folks listening to a daily broadcast at times X, & Y daily. Plus a good number of those on/in the net can also be land based. Such a setup makes it easy to reach a LOT of people with only a little bit of inexpensive technology.
Plus, any & all of the above listed folks/organizations have a decent chance of knowing of others who might be of aid, & or have further links & POC's for you to pursue.
Again, this is another a long shot, but some churches may have resources to help with this directly, & or POC's + ideas on others who might be of assistance.
PS: I forget the technical medical term for it. However, on the young lad with the swelling inside his skull, pressing on his brain (subdural hematoma). Have the doctors not tried the option to drill a small hole through the skull in order to give the pressure to go, & if so, why not?
Also, is the Red Cross in your neck of the woods termed the Red Crescent as well?
