Kenya 2018–Clinic Day 1

Habari from Kabula, Kenya!

Our first day of clinic went really well. Our site was at the home (on the grounds) of Mrs. Mable Walwaula, my favorite. The grounds are peaceful and cool. And Mrs. Mable cooked lunch for us!

We have a large group this half of the month, with 18 medical students, residents and faculty. Add to that translators, a nurse, a pharmacist and a clinical officer, and you have a transportation problem. Everyone pitched in and made it all work today. We shall see if this continues to work, or if we need to hire another vehicle and driver.

We had approximately 91 patient contacts today.

Please pray for us as we continue to serve the people of rural western Kenya.

I can’t get a photo to upload, so none for tonight. More tomorrow.

Kenya 2018

My bags are packed, I’m ready to go…

The LSU/SHIP team leaves today! Our team of medical students, residents and faculty will be traveling to the Bungoma area in western Kenya for SHIP’s annual medical mission. I have been eager to be on my way since Christmas.

I plan to post here at least daily. Last year I had difficulty uploading via WordPress, and did most of my reporting on Facebook, so check there as well.

Please pray for safe travel, for our team, and for the wonderful people in Kenya.
