Infected Ankle

CALM Nurse Practicioner Jane treats a girl from Hawaii who has an infected ankle. Many of the Rainbows walk barefoot around the camp. Common minor injuries include stubbed toes and minor cuts and abrasions. Medical treatment is free in the Rainbow camp. Each of these camps have people who generously donate supplies, money, time and expertise to help supply these medical stations at the Rainbow gatherings every year. For some of these people, this is the only medical attention they will receive all year. Check out our Related Links above for an interesting article in the Charlotte Observer that talks about the challenge of providing medical treatment to the homeless and those who have no money, no medical insurance, and who do not want to be found all the rest of the year.
