    ... One of the other volunteers I'm with cleaned some juicy pustules for a TB patient and then another doctor arrived to ask for assistance at which point I was sent with him.. A lady had sat on a broken basket which had unfortunately sliced up her vajayjay and which then needed to be sutured up - ouch. Luckily a little bit of local anaesthetic was involved!
