Brother and Sister- Both Doctors-- Stepping Up to Help Covid-19 Patients in Mexico and Guatemala

In Mexico City, Conscience International volunteer, Dr. Sandra Kiehnle Rodas, left, gives a “thumbs up” and suits up in PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) to work with Covid-19 patients at the Red Cross tent hospital. In the meantime, her brother, Dr. Jurguen Kiehnle, Conscience International Program Director for Latin America, continues his work in Guatemala, working in another tent hospital set up to handle Covid-19 cases.  Conscience International’s medical team has traveled at personal risk to work side by side with local doctors, nurses, fire fighters and other first responders who are under heavy pressure and under-staffed.
