We got an early start on Monday and went straight to the hospital where we screened 133 patients. From a one-month-old to a 50-year-old.
Myitkyina General Hospital is a sprawling, government run facility and their staff has been extremely welcoming and accommodating so far. We have also greatly benefited from the Kindness Foundation’s volunteers.
It truly takes a little compromise from each party to make these things work, and we are headed in the right direction.
Surgeries begin tomorrow! We will start with 11 cleft lip operations.
