SWISS FRIENDS

OF

DR. ALDO LO CURTO

 
 

Since many years we are supporting the work of the doctor Aldo Lo Curto, traveling volunteer doctor, as he likes to be called. We appreciate his uncommon availability and way of approaching the remote populations of the world but always respecting their cultures and traditions.


His contacts with people are deep and are based on knowledge and listening always in a spirit of studying and helping without falling into paternalism or creating any dependence.


When he is back from his trips in Asia, South America and Africa he begins an intense work of information and sensitization sorting out interesting parallelisms between the western culture and those he got to know thanks to his experience of almost thirty years.

Beside his work of doctor based on the complement of the traditional and the modern medicine, and on the prevention of illnesses, he carries out directly on the field micro-projects such as:

donation of jeeps, ambulance-boats, constructions of autochthon houses, health centres, schools, excavation of wells, etc.


One of his ideas that looked to be urgent and necessary has been the publication of a basic illustrated manual for the sanitarian education addressed to the much vulnerable populations.
