It was quite a party last night on the NEA compound. The entire team, all the NEA staff and their families feasted together outside under the stars. A cow and a goat given to us at the Durbar made a delicious contribution to the main course. After dinner, speeches were given by Dr. Mensah’s mother, his brother Chief of Yaara, Dr. Mensah, and then Dr. Rob and I gave a tag-team address. Our leaders stood to pledge our support as advisors to the Leyaata Hospital for all of the clinical programs during these next months of intense planning. This announcement was extremely well received!
Dr. Mensah and Brenda kicked off the dancing and we enjoyed a fabulous celebration together.
At 5:30 am this morning, it was time to say good-bye. While it was difficult to part with our dear friends here, we are all ready to begin our journey home and look forward to sharing our stories and pictures from this memorable and exceptional mission.
Signing off again…
