Dutch Treat

The Othopedic team from Holland is back.  They straighten crooked legs which occur here very frequently.  In November they operated on 80 children, more often than not doing both legs.

Not only do they provide the medical care but The Lillian Foundation from Holland footed the bill.  Do to economics they were unable to provide the same amount of funding so it looks like there will only be 35 children having surgery this time.

This has been a tremendous program which has been going on for at least 12 years.  The children and families usually spend 3 months here in casts then go to Bafut, a rehabilitation hospital for another 3 months.
