Today was our last day in the medical clinic. We saw 82 patients in the clinic. We also had medical providers who went out and did home visits on a motorcycle and on foot. This accounted for around another 20 visits.

Today I saw the most beautiful 2 year old. She looked at me with the biggest smile. She reached for my hand and took me for a walk in the middle of clinic. I am so grateful to receive a little of her joy. While many of us have experienced this, there is also a sense of sadness and frustration. Because there are some parents who don’t have enough money for paper and pens so a child can go to school.

Today someone said that on our corner of Ward Parkway, we live a very different life than the rest of the world. This is certainly true. But from our little corner of the world we have created a strong partnership and a long lasting friendship.
