We also have an emergency room nurse who opens the clinic each day and takes care of minor ailments. She and her son live right at the school along with many of our teachers and the principal.
We were blessed to have a visit from a volunteer international health organization, in the past, that brought seven doctors to treat people for no cost over an eight-day period. Line-ups of people from a seven-mile radius began at 5:00 am each day.
We provide donated medications such as vitamins, antibiotics, and painkillers that our doctor prescribes. Previously, treatment was often out of the question since villagers simply don't have the money for bus fares to the city or to pay high pharmacy prices.
