A rural doctor who cares about 1700 patients (17 photos)

Meet this Floara Chupita – the only doctor in the village in the south-west of Romania. The 62-year-old woman pays all her time to patients, whom she has 1700 people. Floare has to treat various diseases, since in rural areas there is a serious shortage of medical staff. To pay attention to all those in need, the woman sleeps right on the workplace in an old hospital bed. Despite such difficult working conditions, Floara considers assistance to rural residents as her duty, since she dreamed of the profession of a doctor since childhood.
