6/7/12 I have just heard (Last night) from the Nyembuye team, who dont have an internet connection to hand, that they are all doing well after their first big day at Nyembuye clinic. Chris and Anna and one of the local technicians have created a team where two of them prepare the patients by giving them injections and Chris then pulls the teeth. This will allow them to make the most of their time there. Clare is now seeing some of the pregnant mothers and is getting first hand experience of what is required to benefit the community in terms of pre natal and post natal care.
For me in Buhiga the work is going well too. The leaders are hungry to learn and are prepared to ask questions. Many of these folks have had little in the way of formal education and the tribal situation means that some are unwilling to present questions and say anything because they have been so brow beaten in the past. We are however seeing some good interactions, for which we thank God.
