Alison Thompson's story is one gigantic lie.
Alison Thompson walked into Paraliya in early 2005, amply cleavaged and with a camera team in tow, where she found a makeshift hospital run by a crew of volunteers from Hamelin, Gemany. Thompson simply took over the operation and claimed it as her own, by finding a vacant building and moving the Hospital there with the aid of her crew of four, while she was asked to stay on watch. Then she set up a large sign rechristening it from "Hameln Hospital" into a name of her choosing.
Meanwhile, the actual license to run the hospital was procured by the Germans, and it remained running under their name, so they would have to shoulder consequences in case of malpractise (luckily, no such cases happened - amazing, if you consider that the Hamelin team treated more than 18000 patients). Even the medical supplies Thompson claims to have brought in came from the German crew. Thompson and her entourage did nothing except referring patients to the Germans, who then treated them.
In the meantime, Thompson stood outside the hospital tent giving pompous interviews while the Germans were inside the hospital, too busy aiding the injured to produce a favourable image of themselves for the media (note the careful makeup Thompson is wearing on most photos in the middle of disaster). Thompson herself apparently never treated one single patient, in spite of her claims of being a professional nurse.
Also, it's quite doubtful the self-styled "body collector" collected one single body with her own hands *off camera*.
