The indigenous Ngabe people of Panama have been gradually pushed off their land until there is nowhere left for them to go. They have been on this land for centuries. Already the Panamanian government dammed up the Changuinola River leading to the complete flooding of a Ngabe community. None of the community was compensated for the loss of their homes, land or crops. The people have had protests and some were arrested and attacked by police. Two died and many were injured.
Now another village, Kia, is at risk of being destroyed. A hydroelectric project called Barro Blanco is underway which will dam up the Tabasara River and put the village of Kia underwater.
You can read more about their plight here: http://www.aljazeera.com/programmes/peopleandpower/2012/03/20123208464402131.html
The Ngabe are trying to negotiate with the Panamanian government but the Minister of Government, Jorge Ricardo Fabrega, has already indicated that “nothing” will stop Barro Blanco.

Imagine the next time you are sick, instead of dragging yourself out of bed, getting dressed to go out, then going to the clinic or Emergency Room and waiting hours to be seen….you didn’t have to do any of that. Instead you could be evaluated at home without getting dressed….without even getting out of bed!
Even if you don’t have health insurance, or you have high deductible medical insurance, you will not have to pay a large medical bill.
How is this possible?
With Web Docs Network you contact a physician via your computer or your phone from home. Not just during 9 to 5 hours, either. These physicians are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. It doesn’t matter if you’re sick on a Sunday or at midnight, you can still get help from a doctor–without even leaving your house. All for one small monthly fee. However, if you find 3 people to sign up for the service, then you pay no monthly fee.
With WebDocsNetwork.com you get access to US physicians 24/7 via web-cam, phone or email to evaluate non-emergency medical conditions. These doctors can write orders for labs and prescriptions, too…No more dragging yourself to the doctor to wait hours in the waiting room. Click here to go to the main site.
But That’s Not All
Within 24 hours after your consultation with a physician, you will receive a phone call from a Customer Service Assurance Agent asking about how well your consultation went. The company wanst to make sure the service you received was excellent.

WebDocsNetwork.com is utilizing a part of health care that is cutting edge ie. telemedicine. Telemedicine is defined as the use of telecommunication and information technology (computer webcams, email and phone) to provide medicine at a distance. Telemedicine has become popular, particularly in rural areas, due to the lack of physicians and hospitals. A February 2012 article, written by a physician, spotlights how telemedicine can be cost-effective as well as save lives.
Read what satisfied patients had to say:
I came in today from work. and was not feeling well. Knowing everyone else in the house has been sick the past week I decided I would contact the doctor. Within 15 minutes I had talk to the DR and he had called me in a prescription. Not only did I save a half day going to the doctor and the gas it would have taken to get there I also saved my $30 copay plus got to avoid sitting in the waiting room with a bunch of sick people. I am very thankful to the person who introduced me to webdocs and the wonderful business opportunity they offer. Tonya G. 6/3/2012
What a GREAT Doctors visit today! Amazing “bedside manner”. FYI the followup support from Dr’s visits are wonderful – they call to make sure your visit was good – can you believe that!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Beth H. 5/8/2012
If you want to find out specifics as to how you would access the consultation service you can find out more here: ”Consultation Service” check out the video
For me, I like Web Docs Network because it provides an easy, cost-effective way to consult a physician without lengthy wait times, bureaucratic red tape about what provider or hospital I can go to or large medical bills. Additionally, I have the added bonus of making some money on the side, as the service expands, through profit sharing in the company. Seems like win-win to me. It can be win-win for you, too.
You might think such a service would be very expensive; but, it is not. Membership costs only $19.95 per month; BUT remember…if you refer 3 people to the service, your service becomes FREE.
Guarantee: If you change your mind and do not want the service, you can get a complete refund 72 hours after your first full payment is made. Refunds are offered with no questions asked.
Why not get started now?
All you have to do is fill out a simple form by clicking on “Join Us Now” at the Web Docs Network link.
For more on the profit sharing:
“Members” participate in the profit sharing of the company. However, “Consultants” get more of the profit sharing than members. The cost to be a consultant is only $20 more a month than a member. To be a consultant, the cost is $49.95; but again, if you refer 3 to the service, the service for the consultant becomes FREE. Web Docs Network has set up a separate site which explains in detail how the profit sharing works–it is WebDocsNetwork.net.
One of my favorite causes is Kiva.org. The principle behind this organization is microloans are given to people in impoverished areas of the world who cannot get large business loans. The loans help these people to build their businesses and get out of poverty. I have been loaning through Kiva.org for several years. I like to loan to single mothers because I think they have it the hardest having to take care of the kids and be the sole bread winner. Every loan I have ever made through this organization has been paid in full. I have loaned all over the world from Asia to South America. Check out this wonderful organization that has made a difference all over the world!
