LELA the Pig supports the nuns at Sanatorio Mazatlan


DSC04866During the month of October 2015, LELA the Pig turns towards the oldest hospital in Mazatlan “Sanatorio Mazatlan”. The hospital is run by 7 nuns, who take care of patients from all backgrounds.

DSC04865Sanatorio Mazatlan was the first hospital in Mazatlan, managed by the Sisters of the Holy Heart of Jesus since 1934.  This congregation of nuns originates from Guadalajara, Jalisco and their founder is the first Mexican saint Maria de Jesus Sacramentado. In those days there was no public hospital available and every patient was treated at Sanatorio Mazatlan. Until 1980 the first public hospital opened for the public and the work load for the nuns decreased.

Currently Sanatorio Mazatlan has 15 hospital beds, 2 operating rooms, intensive care and X-ray facilities. The nuns work day and night shifts, prepare food for patients, tend to spiritual needs and administrate the hospital. Sanatorio Mazatlan depends completely on donations and they do no receive any government funds. Patients without healthcare insurance are attended without charge.

Currently the Emergency Room is poorly equipped. Your generous donations will go towards purchasing two neccesary pieces of equipment for the work of the nuns. You’ll be proud to know that each $1USD-bill helps to buy a defibrillator and a heart monitor. These machines will help save hundreds of people’s lifes! LELA the Pig will reveal how much she collected at the end of October. You can follow her every move on http://www.lelathepig.com or http://www.facebook.com/lelathepig.
