Day one of the medical clinic was a very busy day. When we arrived, the church where we did the clinic was filled with people waiting for us. Before we started, that sang a welcome to us and prayed about the joy they felt that we were there. In six hours we saw 75 adults and 149 children. 65 of those children came from a local school that needed parasite medicine. In addition to treating patients, Matt and Priscilla performed an eye glass clinic in the am that saw 60 patients.
Our team also partnered with local dentists taking blood pressures for them while they performed dental care ranging from teeth inspection to tooth extraction.
The patients were treated and educated on diseases consisting of: diabetes, high blood pressure, headache, parasites, body aches, fever, cough, allergies, rash and skin lesions.
