Statement by Lawndale Communith Health Center (LCHC)
The LCHC says Umanos worked there for 16 years, until 2005 when he and his wife Jan moved to Afghanistan."For over a decade, Dr. Jerry Umanos has volunteered in Afghanistan to train medical residents and to see pediatric patients," said Dr. Bruce Rowell of Lawndale Christian Health Center. "This is a great loss for his family, for those of us he worked with as well as for the people of Afghanistan."
"Most of these kids here would be dead. There's very few facilities that cn take care of kids this small."
