What a great day. Today Matt and I joined an organization called the Luke Commission Medical Clinic. It was amazing to see.
The doctors are from the States and they come every year and travel through Swaziland to provide free healthcare to people in rural areas. The set up they had was impressive. They got a detailed medical history of each patient. Then they would send them for HIV/AIDS testing. By the time the patient left they would know if they are positive andthey would then have access to free treatment. Also patients had the opportunity to meet with a doctor privately and be treated for any other health issue they may have. A pharmacy was set up as well where they handed out free medicine prescribed by the doctor. Finally, there was a eye station where people would have their eyes tested and recieve a pair of glasses. It truly was an amazing sight to see!!!
For those who have been asking, I cannot remember the Make’s name who passed away. I do know; however, that it was Vusi’s mom. She also has other small children who attend Enaleni.
Tomorrow we are going to meet with some teachers from the carepoints as well as some teachers who have just arrived from the States and talk about ideas that they can use. I think it will be a neat experience.
Matt also says thank you for all the birthday wishes!!
Thats all for now!
Amanda and Matt
