One particular experience that has driven Dr. Rex , for the rest of his life was in Ethiopia Damian camp. The Red Cross worker said I want you to see this special tent. He opened the tent flap. All Lonnie saw was 90 bodies wrapped in sharers on straw mats. There were three long rows. Lonnie thought it was a morgue. It was deathly silent. The Red Cross worker spoke to one of the bodies. The body moved pulling her clothing back to show a new born baby. He spoke to another again a new born baby. Lonnie was stund as he had thought all 90 bodies were corps.There were over a million tents on the grounds. These 90 women
had had babies in the last few days. Again Lonnie was stunnd. Lonnie said to the worker," I just had a new grandson born before I left the United States. When I arrived at the nursury there were 10 or 12 babies there that had just been born. It was very noise as many were screaming and crying". The worker looked him straight in the eyes and said,"Dr.Rex, these babies do not have the strength to cry."
It has been my passion to raise money to feed those who do not have the strength to cry. That is what drives me day and night.
