Yesterday the whole team was able to participate in village outreach with the Mercy Hospital staff to Flawahun, a village in the Sembahun Salenga catchment area. We served alongside the staff in pre-natal visits, lab testing for malaria and HIV screening, nutrition for the youngest children, and pharmacy disbursements. It was humbling to be among so many people with such need and limited resources. It was a hot and exhausting, but very rewarding day. We all appreciated the care that the Mercy staff give to every person they come in contact with.
Today is our last day in Bo! We are wrapping up our projects and writing up our notes and observations. Sometimes it feels as though the time has flown by, and other times our experiences have impacted us so much we cannot believe we have been here less than 2 weeks. We are all looking forward to coming home and sharing our experiences with friends and family.
