The daily fee for being in the hospital is 500 Francs, about one dollar.  The patient is charged for each lab test, x-ray, medication and surgical procedure.  Marcel who spent 2 weeks in the hospital with his cerebral malaria had a bill of $250.  His mother is handicapped and his grandmother is the sole provider for the family.  She was able to pay $17. 

Donations in our name to MDA allowed us to cover the rest of his bill and allow him to go home. 

Thank you all for your continued support.
