Safe, Sound and Hitting the Ground Running
Our first day in the village is only half over and we have accomplished much legwork. We have been to Trinidad to visit the first of three local clinics and a hospital that we are visiting to possibly set up a partnership with Partners for World Health via their Strategist, Patricia Normand, who is here with me. We will meet with the administrator later. We were greeted upon our return by Yester and Sindy, two of our orphaned children. Yester came because he knew I would be an easy mark for a chicken for lunch. They waited patiently for our return. Pictures speak a 1000 words they say. We also sorted school uniforms, medical supplies and gifts for sponsor families.First thing this morning we walked to the guarderia and saw the new Ecofiltro at work providing clean drinking water for all our children. And to think it's only afternoon!!!!
