After 4 weeks of teams we have come to our final day!
We ended the week with 25 stoves installed in homes in Desierto, Norte and Concepcion. The team was touched by how welcoming an appreciative the families are when we arrive to install their new stove.
The two doctors continued seeing patients in the clinic today. It was their second year and they have built friendships with the clinic staff and translators.
The children's craft program was a huge success! Today was our day to finish up craft supplies and we made more masks, more coloring pages and some shaker plates. The kids had a blast playing soccer with two guys from the team.

Bathrooms are more than a conveniece: they are a public health concern.

We have a total of 14 stoves installed so far this week! Meaning 14 families that are no longer living in an environment filled with smoke. The stove team is on a roll and has a great system where everyone has a job.
The clinic was busy yesterday and today. Many patients coming through seeing the doctor and then getting their medicine. We also still have a few more stuffed animals that nurse Kelly B. brought down last week.
