a piece of history is disappearing

For those who have worked in Hospital Vozandes del Oriente or who have visited Shell, Ecuador these pictures might bring a tear to your eye. The old hospital that sits on the main road is being pulled down as we speak. After serving for years as the mission hospital it then became the mission guest house, providing accommodation to all the visitors, work groups and holiday'ing missionaries. After standing nearly 50 years it has become a home to termites who have enjoyed feasting on the wooden framework, so it has gradually become unsafe. Alfredo was born in this hospital!
