We have had a steady flow of patients all week here at the clinic. Patients with minor problems of coughs and cold to more complicated cases of special needs kids and a little girl with kidney failure. One thing that really made an impression on team members is the care and love given to special needs kids despite the incredibly difficult circumstances. Just having a child with special needs is difficult, but adding in the reality of living in extreme poverty and not always having enough to eat, let alone pay for transportation and expensive medical bills seems overwhelming. But as usual, the Guatemalans have surprised us and impressed us with their attitude and dedication towards their children.
