Hello Everyone,

I went to the hospital this morning to get the remaining result and I was again disappointed to see the youngest of them all, suffering from two different types of worms. I was also disappointed when I went to see a doctor and I was told all 10 children needed to be with me with a guardian. Luckily, they told me if I came on Wednesday morning at 8 am they would prioritize me and also the consultation fee would be waved. Although, I am quite overwhelmed that I have to take about 15 people to the hospital on my last available day at the site. I am crossing my fingers that is is a quick process, and crossing them extra hard that the medications are not astronomical!

When I got back to the site I discussed the hospital visit with the children and their parents and collected some additional information. Then again I did a bit of first aid; the kids are starting to think they know how to clean up cuts but they definitely need supervision and more education about it.

John Joseph had a fever in the afternoon but after some paracetamol he seemed to be feeling a bit better, at least we are going to the hospital tomorrow anyway.

I came back in the afternoon to meet with my Sponsored child and her mother and then I was off to take Ellie Smith to the airport (a long time family friend).

My day was jam packed with things to do and places to go, I am hoping I can squeeze in every last thing tomorrow!

The center is looking amazing, they began installed the roof frames today and I was shocked to see them put in to place. They also completed more of the walls and started on interior walls of the bathrooms. And they were even able to remove the frames from the roof beams which was great to see.

One more day of observing left for me!
