除了用愛擁抱遊民,還能做些甚麼?慈濟人從來不是錦上添花的隊伍,而是雪中送炭的一群。慈濟拉斯維加斯聯絡處每年兩到三次在老城區舉行牙科義診,除了號召當地愛心醫師及牙醫助理義診看牙之外,還動員總會團隊開大卡車,遠道運送診療椅、X光機、牙科器械及消毒設備支援,近百位志工犧牲周末休假日,起早摸黑忙到個個腰酸背痛、疲憊不勘,一切都是為了守護無家可歸者的健康。


用行動關心遊民 展現人間之愛

賭城拉斯維加斯境內的十五號公路繁華正盛,閃爍的霓虹顏色爭奇鬥艷,然而,賭場大道的滾滾紅塵卻在北上路段嘎然而止,取而代之的是蕭瑟的風景,風中搖擺的帳篷、飛舞街面的垃圾,還有躲避豔陽天的落魄遊民⋯⋯那是一群流浪的子民,他們守著自己僅有的帳篷,用石塊壓住棚腳抵禦狂風與飛砂,推著超市的空車沿路撿拾破爛,走向沒有希望的明天。

衣食住行尚且捉襟見肘,疾病來襲時更是無語問蒼天,當美國慈濟志工沿街拜訪倒在帳棚裡的遊民:「請問,有人需要免費的牙科服務嗎?」有人張口失笑:「我的牙早就掉光了呀!」有人驚惶失措,東張西望尋求協助:「我想去,可是,誰能幫我看守家當呢?這可是我全部的身家財產啊!」志工看著掛在大樹上的帳棚布,推車上的瓶瓶罐罐及又髒又破的幾件衣服,忍住心裡翻攪的蒼涼之感,鼓勵他們彼此看守財產,輪流去看牙。

慈濟拉斯維加斯聯絡處每年在老城區舉行牙科義診,4月23日的牙科義診由志工蔡濟晉帶隊,他鼓勵大家:「了解到街友無力負擔高昂的牙科醫藥費,不願見他們生活在沒有希望的未來,讓我們用行動告訴他們,慈濟人關心遊民,這個人間有愛!」接著他又說:「在這個隊伍裡,我沒有看到捨不得放棄周末休假的人,更沒有害怕接觸遊民的人,若沒有志工的發心,這群遊民就可能陷在沒錢治牙病的痛苦之中了。」

不錯過任一病人 愈疲憊愈幸福

志工為了讓更多人受惠於牙科義診,除了定期定點在救世軍活動中心舉辦義診之外,還在拉斯維加斯主流的慈善會議中,邀約各團體推薦有需要接受服務的病人前來,這次義診就有來自戒毒及戒酒中心的三十五位病人。幾位志工又於當日前往Shade Tree 家暴婦幼收容所、天主教慈善單位及遊民聚集的主要街道進行邀約,唯恐錯過任何一個受牙痛所苦的病人。

有一位原本排隊要去領取免費早餐的遊民,看到志工走來宣傳義診活動,連忙放棄早餐,改去排隊看牙,他對志工說:「上次拔了牙,今天想洗牙!」因為受限於時間,每位病人只能要求一項服務,讓其他病人都能得到醫療照顧。

而就在志工進行邀約時,在街上遇到一位街友,得知他正值失業,身分證又遭盜竊,已牙痛六個月了,卻沒有醫師願意幫他看牙;而街友聽說在救世軍活動中心正舉辦義診的好消息,就立刻要來求診。志工張愷倫見他在大馬路上揮汗前進,便順路載了他一程,及時趕上義診的末班車。

就在義診時間快結束了,排隊的病人還很冗長,志工正猶豫是否延長時間,醫療團隊此刻即時給予鼓勵:「別擔心,我們會留下來看完最後一個病人。」當場,振奮了所有人的心。

或許是宣傳得力之故,原本預定看診一百人的義診竟打破紀錄,共服務了一百二十八人,其中有二十六位還接受了義剪的服務,一改蓬頭垢面的形象,顯得有精神多了。圓滿義診後,志工和醫療團隊的身體愈疲憊,卻感到愈幸福,因為無私的付出,讓更多的遊民得到照顧。【更多內容,請參閱慈濟全球社區網
