Bonswa from Haiti! The team spent the day in Andero, a community outside Petit Goave. After a bumpy ride up the mountain, we were rewarded with a beautiful view from the schoolhouse where we held the clinic.
It was an eventful day that included a team member falling and and smacking her nose onto the ground, two other team members rescuing a chicken who was entangled in string, and treating over 120 patients.
Haitians are so kind and generous, even when they have very little themselves. One team member complimented an elderly woman on her hat, and the woman offered to give it to her. So much to love about the people here!
Tomorrow we will be working again at the clinic in Petit Goave. We will be heading back to Port-au-Prince one day early — on Thursday instead of Friday –to avoid any possible heavy rains from Hurricane Maria that could flood roads out of Petit Goave. We will try to find somewhere to serve on Friday in Port-au-Prince before heading home on Saturday.
The picture of the gentleman in the gray collared EKS shirt is a local volunteer that spends his free time working in his community teaching health and sanitation as well as disaster preparation and many other things. The men and women EKS volunteers work tirelessly for the betterment of their communities. Such a blessing to serve with them!
Thank you to everyone who has been praying for our safety this week. We appreciate each and every one.
