Today, the old team left and the new team arrived. Four suitcases will arrive tomorrow, but everything else went as planned. This morning the driver took the man who’s blood sugar was over 600 to a clinic we found. The clinic lied about the price, so we don’t think they can afford to go back. The driver arrived back at the clinic at 7:30 to find a nine-month pregnant woman lying outside the clinic with eclampsia and very high blood pressure. Tish and Jaime went to Doctors Without Borders’ with her where they were told to leave her because no doctors where there yet. I have prayed for that poor woman all day. The healthcare shortage continues. We have seen over 14,100 patients since we arriving on January 24th. Tomorrow we will continue with medical care and also construction.
