14-17 July 2015
Today was our clinic day, it was very basic, but needed. Deworming, assessments, toothbrushes, toothpaste, vitamins etc..... We saw many things... from Jaundice, Malaria, chickenpox, extreme heart murmurs, clicks, rubs and gallops, severe dental problems. The people just wanted to be helped. We figure there were more than 1,200 that passed through the little church that we were working in. It took about 5 hours to see them all.
Yesterday we went back to the house that we are building and hauled a lot of dirt to fill in the floors. It is a small 2 room house, and beause it is built on a bit of a hill one end is lower than the other. So, we filled in the floors up to the brick line where the cement floor will be poured. Then, everyone that was there helping was invited inside to pack down the dirt..there were lots of big people and lots of kids all in a chain line singing and weaving there way from one room to the next, and back again. It was fun.
I better send this before something happens to the internet...or the hydro..it went out a few minutes ago, but came back on quickly.
