Due to lack of funds, baby Marissa dies

The Ministry of Health could not help nine-month-old Marissa Ramlal—who died on Tuesday— with funding for a liver transplant because of “budgetary circumstances,” Health Minister Jerry Narace said yesterday.

Narace was speaking at yesterday’s post-cabinet media briefing at the Diplomatic Centre in St Ann’s.

Baby Marissa, who was unable to suckle milk and had been vomiting blood, required $1.8 million to undergo a liver transplant.

Marissa’s belly was also swollen to the size of a football.

But Narace maintained that his Ministry could only operate within budgetary and policy circumstances.

He noted, however, that the ministry gave the maximum possible amount—$60,000—which was “the policy by which we are guided.”

Narace said, “The media will be the first to tell us we must always review our budgets and look at the way we are spending.

“My instructions to the ministry was for us to do the maximum possible to assist the young lady,” Narace added, while offering condolences to baby Marissa’s family.

He said unless the Health Ministry found some financing mechanism it was going to be difficult—but traditionally, people had engaged in different fundraising ventures and that the ministry was more than willing to give the maximum possible amount.

Asked whether the country was equipped to deal with liver transplants and other procedures, Narace said: “These are objectives that we are working towards and there are certain speciality measures/procedures that we are unable to do at this time.

“However, the Government, in trying to create a first world health care system—and we have plans currently to develop two new institutions, one in Port-of-Spain and one in Central Trinidad—we are hoping to acquire that kind of capability as we proceed.”

On the issue of a special fund that would assist families to get specialised care for their children, Narace said an appropriate solution was being sought through the introduction of the National Health System (NHS).

“That NHS is going to be a new system that would allow us to treat with all of these circumstances in the future,” Narace added.

He said the Cabinet had recently approved a health economics unit for the Health Ministry to make appropriate arrangements so that unit would be able to provide the ministry with the cost of a number of services which would commence the NHS system.

The interim measure, however, was the ceiling figure of $60,000, Narace said.

If this was ah fockin nigga baby, you woulda see how fast these fockin Hutu power hungry animals woulda geh da money to save the the niglet life eh.

It real fockin easy to take ah million dollars and give niggas for running ah 100meters under 10 secs, which is what they normally do after robbing some Indian home.

It real fockin easy to take up $50.000.00 and give that lil niglet "Chocolate" for starving she mudder cont self, which she was doin in any case.

But to save the life of ah lil Coolie baby.

Fock dat, leh she dead.

THat summarises how things are in Trinidad.

Thank you PNM, thank you COP.

Dey don't value Indians in this country. But that's okay. Fockers don't realise we feed them, educate them and even pray for them! They dominate the army and the police and rather than 'protect and serve' they kidnap, rape and murder we!!! But then again, they doing that their own kind, so what do you expect? Niggers bring shame and disgrace to all the hard-working, decent, educated Blacks all over the world. Even Manning fed-up with them! When the fock dey go learn that they must stay in school, go to church, listen to their parents and live a righteous life? And dem gutter coolies ain't no better either. Focking niggers - you disgracing Obama!

Now as a proud Trinidad Black woman, I could rant and rave about all this racist nonesense, but I wouldn't. I feel sorry for those who spew ignorant racist rant.

I have worked and gone to school with many Indians over the years, and I see some very inherent traits that are seriously undeniably stink, but I am careful not to lump all in one basket.

I try to treat (with a degree of caution) all I encounter on an even keel. I start with liking the individual and systematically deduct points when and if they screw up.

I could never understand why so many people are intimidated by the African race so. We excel and that's a fact. Some might say we are just strong physically, but I have come to recognize that others try to bar us from many things, because of they fear our strength in EVERYTHING. Once given a chance, we Africans can rule the world.

i have never heard such ignorance in my entire life. the only reason allyuh coolies trying to take down d black race is because you wish to be like us. we were taken out of our home land africa and u was forced out of india because u simply wasnt good enough in their tyrannical caste goverment system so dont forget that. allyuh doh kno yuh makin tings worse fuh yuh self by talkin dis shit. d more allyuh write racist shit like dis is the more other races will look down on you for d dutty senseless wanna-be white coolie people that allyuh is

I am of mixed race (Indian/Spanish/Carib) And though I understand the frustrations one may have with the current PNM we should not go down this road. There a good people of all races and bad people of all races. Black people may have their challenges as well as other people too, but let us not dwell on that. Let us try and be part of some better change. We can do a lot rather than talk race. Killing is fine. But we don't have to make it into a racial issue.

prostitution of women in India. According to a 1994 report in Asian Age there are at least 70,000 women sex workers in Delhi, Madras, Calcutta, Bangalore and Hyderbad. 30% of these women are under 20 years of age. 40% are 20-30 years of age, and approximately 15% of them became prostitutes as children under the age of 12.
In India, many innocent victims are forced into prostitution by their husbands or relatives. Some are tricked or enticed into prostitution.

if indians are so great and the black government so racist against allyuh, y allyuh didnt put and raise d money...... allyuh barely make a million. i know indian people making millions a month and yet no money for the 'coolie baby". y u do indian people bad talk black people all the time, i am mixed and look spanish so i hear all d nigger comments all day from indian people yet i hardly hear black people talking bout indians in the same manner. the entire black race in trinidad is based on a couple thousand uneducated 'yutes' in laventille and other low income areas. although black people doh judge all indians by dem teif in penal and arima always choppin someone wit 'cutlash'. wen things go wrong stop blaming race and blame d individual and his gang.

modern man originated in east africa and the only reason we look different is because of external enviromental conditions that in no way affect brain evolution. it nuture not nature meanin slavery hav SOME lack ppl so, not all. if u were brought to a country by force and were then 'emacipated' with no money or land, how would ur ppl better themselves. indian were indentured and recieved money and land and werent shunned by the white former slave owners and so, were able to start their businesses.

Unfortunately that people continue to die because they have no money to pay for an operation including a doctor or a drug is very unfortunate but it seems that senior officers do not care at all
