Australian physicians in Oro for outreach program A


N eight-person medical team from Interplast Australia once again trooped to Cagayan de Oro for ten days last August to hold surgeries for cleft palate reconstruction and realignment. Now on its 17th year, the Put a Smile project of Interplast Australia has netted a total of 77 beneficiaries who have cleft palate deformities, some coming from as far as Visayas. Persons who have these deformities usually suffer from low self-esteem and difficulty in social interactions with others.

“We have patients coming from Boracay, North Cotabato and Zamboanga,” reported Mar Paano, the chair of the Put a Smile leg in Cagayan de Oro this year. Interplast Australia is a not-for-profit organization working to improve the quality of life for people with disability as a result of congenital or acquired

medical conditions such as cleft lip palate or burn scar contractures. They do this by sending fully qualified Australian and New Zealand volunteer plastic and reconstructive surgeons, anesthetists and allied health professionals elsewhere in Asia Pacific to provide free surgical treatment for patients who could otherwise not be able to afford access to such services. Here in Cagayan de Oro, they’ve been hosted since 1998 by the Rotary Club of Cagayan de Oro. According to Carlos Gorospe who initiated the program that year,

he was moved to build a partnership with Interplast Australia because of the sheer number of children in Mindanao who are affected with cleft lip

palates. It is the Rotary Club of Cagayan de Oro which coordinates the entire program, helps the visitors identify and screen beneficiaries, provides

security and in-land transportation and their other needs. For this year, Interplast Australia sent in two surgeons, three outreach/PAGE 11

No light at the tunnel’s end! Latin Americans and Asians are happy that they do not need the help of the International Monetary Fund (IMF). But, Europe can no longer function without it. What’s behind the IMF’s interest in Greece? With loans totaling approximately $25 billion, Greece is currently the International Monetary Fund’s (IMF) most important customer. “The IMF has crossed the ‘point of no return’,” says Rolf J. Langhammer from the Kiel Institute for the World Economy in northern Germany. “Basically, it should have walked away at an earlier point in time. Now, it’s too late.” I think, unfortunately, the German economist is right, Langhammer has advised international organizations like the World Bank, the EU and German ministries, understands well why many of the 188 members of the IMF are not enthusiastic about the fund’s extraordinary attentiveness to Athens. Many developing countries feel that Greece

is a rich European industrial country. “Many developing countries think, ‘you have always been tough with us but you are always making exceptions for the rich Europeans,’” says Langhammer. They wonder why they should have to pay for a country in the euro zone. The professor feels there is a “great deal of logic” behind the question. It seems paradoxical: The term debt relief is a taboo in Latin America, Asia and Africa but that is exactly what Greece asked the IMF for. On August 14, the head of the IMF, Christine Lagarde, made the organization’s position clear by saying, “It is crucial for Greece’s debt sustainability that its European partners commit themselves to significant debt relief, which goes far beyond the measures taken so far.” The IMF’s concerns about the sustainability of Greek debt, however, actually reflect selfinterest. “We know that from the Latin American debt crisis in the 1980s,” recalls the economist Langhammer.

“Then they argued that a haircut would increase the chances serving the interest payable on the remaining debt.” Does the fund simply defend the interests of its members by investing their money well? “The IMF is shouting as loud as it can so that no one gets the idea that it could possibly take part in a haircut,” says Jürgen Kaiser, the coordinator of Jubilee Germany, a German NGO that promotes fair and transparent bankruptcy rules. A very big problem: Christine Lagarde lacks explanations. The IMF had problems explaining what happened in 2002 as well. At that time, more and more emerging and developing nations distanced themselves from the organization. Sustained growth rates allowed them to form foreign exchange reserves and enabled them to pay off their debts. The IMF lost its customers and was forced to look around for new business opportunities. The IMF and the ESM, the European Stability

Mechanism, came closer when the controversy over the definition of debt sustainability broke out this week. Now, the debt amount itself is not decisive, but the servicing of debt, instead. Europe’s lenders claim to have given Athens the best conditions possible to service its debt to the IMF. Maybe strong words, but the sky may fall in on Greece, but Greece will continue to exist as a state. Question only: what will we all pay for it? +++ Email: doringklaus@ or follow me in Facebook or Twitter or visit www.germanexpatinthephilippines.blogspot. com or www.klausdoringsclassicalmusic.blogspot. com.

Call the site’s hotline to verify. • If you strongly suspect you have been scammed and your credit card information has been stolen, contact your bank or credit card issuer to block the card and investigate. Savvy Fashionistas • Pick the right size by using the size chart feature, taking your measurements and checking carefully for any international conversions (UK, US, EU, Japan). • Ensure the site has an exchange policy
