I read a disturbing article on NPR's website today.

A simple disease is completely out of hand in Zimbabwe because the country lacks even the most basic of medical rubber gloves.

One doctor interviewed for the article revealed that his salary last month was 36 cents USD.


How does this happen?

And what can I do?

I feel a bit disgusted that I have griped about my salary...that is more than 5,000 times as much as that doctor's.

And I'm a lowly receptionist...with no medical degree.

Kinda puts it all into perspective.
