Another World

Terry and I have been back in Njinikom for 10 days and are well into our second work week.  It was wonderful to spend time with family and friends while we were home.  

It took very little time seeing patients to remind us of the hardships of poverty and illness that so many people endure here.  The devastation that HIV leaves in its wake is all too evident in the lives of our patients.  Despite this we are enjoying being back among happy and polite people.  We frequently have little to offer some patients yet they are always thankful for our efforts.  

We have also been reminded how difficult it would be here without the financial help of our supporters through Mission Doctors Association.  We have already provided many medical tests, medications and surgical fees for patients that could not afford them and would have gone without.  Thank you!
