We had a wonderful week with Henri and the CEDAN group. The medical team of 21 had four days of clinic and saw close to 800 people. One of the highlight for me was what we could do for Daniel. As you know Daniel has been having trouble walking do to a growth on his inner thigh. When we got to CEDAN Sunday morning I could just see the pain in his face as he walked, but he did not say anything and was just pleased to see the team there and thanks us for coming to help the Haitian people. Well, we were so lucky to has a surgeon with us on the trip. Dan looked at him an schedule him to come back early one morning.
Two days later I was working in the pharmacy it was almost noon and we were very busy. I filled a script and went to the door to hand it out. There was Daniel standing there with the biggest smile on his face. He was already walking so much better!
Also I got a first hand look at the water system and was very grateful it was there. ( by the way someone can by to check it while we were there ) Now all we need to do is work in the plumbing :)
I have a photo of the new motor bike [to be used by CEDAN]. It is just waiting on the registration paperwork.
We had such a wonderful time with the people at CEDAN. The people want to have a better life there and are so willing to help with anything they can. It just goes to show we can make a difference. They are not asking for handouts just a jump start to get them going and growing.
Many thanks to 3Strand we can see the difference you are make there.
