Today a very sick elderly woman and little boy came in to our clinic in Haiti. They are being treated for typhoid and malaria. They are so sick we could not send them home, and they are spending the night sleeping soundly in beds in one of our exam rooms.
Today we began a program here at the clinic for some of the children in Damien. We had younger kids come in the morning, and older kids in the afternoon. Each group spent a fun-filled two hours playing games and doing crafts. They all came from the pig farm dressed in their nicest clothes. It was so nice for them to get out of that environment for a few hours. We will continue this program for the remainder of the time the team is here.
We are just beginning our recycling program here! The kids were very eager to go around collecting bottles and other recylables, and they did a great job. We hope to develop this program over the next few months so that it can provide some jobs and keep Blanchard’s streets cleaner!
