Clinic Running Well

The clinic, now more than a year into operation, is running well. There is one doctor, one nurse, and one helper. Most of their activity is centred around consultation, diagnosis, and prescription and distribution of medicine (traditional or Western).

The picture here shows a group of patients and family members lining up to pick up their medicine at the clinic.

Minor surgeries are also performed. The little boy shown here was bitten by a dog, and arrived at the clinic (an hour away from his home) with a large tear in his cheek. Here you see him sleeping after his wound has been cleaned and sutured.

If the clinic did not exist, it is certain the wound would not have been treated as effectively. The boy’s face would have been very badly disfigured, with a great risk of infection as well.
