More stoves and more patients!

Today the medical team was back seeing patients at the PID clinic. They did some well child checks along with sick patient visits.

Cara, our PT on the team, brought down a baby carrier in hopes of being able to help a mother whose daughter Dayana has cerebral palsy and can't walk or sit up on her own. Her mother carries her to her therapies each week and then each month travels with her by chicken bus to Guatemala City to see a specialist and receive medication.

The construction crew was able to install 4 new plancha stoves today to some very thankful families. The team members commented that they really felt like they were making a difference in the health of the families upon seeing their living conditions and where they were cooking in smoke-filled kitchens.
