So much has happened this day that it is hard to capture in words. Through a beautiful display of teamwork, cooperation and generosity the team saw over 500 patients in sweltering heat in the village of Nyamboi.
It was quite a sight to see the headlamps blazing as everyone worked to finish in the pitch black. We thought we were finished when a young boy was carried in after falling from a moving motorbike. Team members worked in the dark to provide emergency care to this little boy who is going to be okay. The village thanked us with a huge pile of yams, a beautiful ram, and a stool (that you sit on) which is a symbol of welcome.
Despite such a busy day the bus ride home was full of animated conversation and it was 9pm when we returned to the compound. The surgical team also had a very busy day operating on 22 patients!
We are packed and ready for our two-day adventure to the very remote village of Yaara where we will sleep over. Yaara is my favorite village and we hear the village is just so excited about our arrival tomorrow. I don’t think we will be able to get a message to you tomorrow but will update as soon as we are back.
Thanks to all our friends and families for your support and prayers!
Until Thursday …
