Zone Seche

Six hours of riding in the bus today for a trip out past Port A Piment. We traveled over roads broken up by Hurricane Sandy last October, over two riverbed separate and around washed out bridges to set up clinic in a medium sized church. Our first patient was an elderly woman with two very badly infected legs from her knee to her ankles. The next was a 3 year old with a vaginal infection from being washed in dirty water. Others were a 49 yo woman who looked 9 months pregnant but actually had a huge tumor growing. A 25 yo with typhoid. A man with diabetic sugar level of 430.
