TEAM(S) NICARAGUA: CLINIC DAY 3

August 10, 2017

NICARAGUA TEAM ONE (Sébaco)

Torrential rains and strong winds with thunder and lightning in the true nature of a tropical rain storm ended our day and cooled our bodies. We were at a school outside of Sébaco and cared for 200 patients ranging in age from a few weeks old to 90 years old!

Our spiritual word for today is “compassion” to remind us to be caring, not aloof, and not mechanical but to be really there with our patients. W want to listen to them and help them feel the love of God through our efforts.

NICARAGUA TEAM TWO (El Viejo)

What a wonderful Wednesday!

Our team traveled to a school west of El Viejo. When we arrived some of the children were still in school so we set up in the available classrooms. There’s always logistics and problem solving that go into getting clinic moving but we are becoming pros for sure.

Our team is amazing and worked so hard to see as many patients as possible, even waiting at the end for a few more patients to arrive. We treated our most patients yet, 265! The physicians and pharmacy were troopers working to meet every last patient’s need.

We also had a team member birthday! FELIZ CUMPLEAÑOS Adriana. A big birthday song was in order at the end of our workday and birthday cake with a trick candle after dinner!
