The health system here is in major trouble with cost cuts, poor morale and corruption making it very hard for the health professionals working at the coal face. Every day is a struggle for them.
In the afternoons we have been going to Bregma Primary health care clinic and working alongside dr Vincent and his team. Also we have had some time to visit another project here called tendertrust run by Lois Ford from NZ who cares for about 100 orphans, many of who have major disabilities. Its very impacting. Also our visits to the homes of some of our health workers has been a major highlight. More information to follow. Bedtime approaches and i need to get under my mosquito net away from these little malaria bearing mosquitos buzzing about me. We were all very excited tonight when the power came on after several days of blackouts. We rushed aorund and plugged in all our appliances to get charged up! The water heated up and we had hot showers!
