A pregnant woman needed a cesarean section for her baby to be delivered. When she went to the hospital, money was requested for the operation; money the woman did not have. In conclusion, the woman was refused care.
This is when Americhelp, a nonprofit, non-governmental agency, stepped in. American volunteers along with the organization’s founder, Harold Salomon of Los Alamos, offered the fee for the cesarean section. At this point, Salomon said the hospital became embarrassed and ended up doing the operation for free.
