Constructing a building dedicated for medical use would ensure that there would always be a place where the villagers could go to receive medical attention all year round. This would be life changing!! We will stock the 2 room facility with medical supplies, we'll have trained local villagers who can provide medical treatment when no outside doctors are there and equip the building with solar for lighting. The center will also serve the sick from surrounding villages who will be more than happy to walk a few hours to receive help.
Next week I'll begin posting about how YOU can get involved with this worthwhile project. We plan to get the 1st round of funds to Freddy (our project manager) by Xmas, so we only have about a month. The building needs to be completed by May 15 as that is when the rains will begin again.

I want to wish everyone a wonderful Thanksgiving and remind you to please take a minute before you indulge in that hearty meal, to say a prayer and give thanks for your blessings. We are truly blessed to be living in this great country called the United States. Even the poorest among us are not as bad off as millions of people around the world who face hunger and disease on a daily basis.

Well, looks like I just launched the project!
And a special thank you to Antonio Djati - Without whom we would not have these wonderful pictures to share.
