A true claim story

  • My son was bitten on the face (bleeding cuts under the lower lip and by the eye!) by a dog at the place we stayed in Toronto. My son (age 4) jumped in front of the dog and the dog nipped him. We took him to the emergency room for stitches.

  • At the end of 3 day visit to a very remote area of Sierra Leone, I started to have a strong headache on the way back home. The trip to the city of Makeni was 3 around hours. During those hours I lost all my energy and almost my conscious. Once in Makeni, I was brought to the hospital. They immediately did a blood test - I was positive to malaria and typhoid. The hospital admitted me until for all the treatments. Once discharged I continued to take other drugs to finish the treatment.

  • I got a food poisoning from a buffet dinner in Siem Riep, Cambodia. I was feeling unwell at night, had diarrhoea and vomiting. I had to go to the bathroom again, so I got up from bed and I fainted before getting there, hitting my head against the door's frame. When I recovered consciousness, my husband noticed that the wound in my head was bleeding a lot, so he called to the emergency number of World Nomads. You referred us to the Royal Angkor International Hospital (about 3 Km from our guesthouse). The woman in charge of the guesthouse called a tuk-tuk driver to get us there at about 3:15 am. World Nomads had already contacted the hospital for the physician evaluation, the treatment of the wound and the medication.
