We finally made it to Samfya Wednesday and got to meet Dr. Albert, the head of Medical Department with the district and Dr. Lichiku, a Congolese doctor who is overseeing the new hospital.  He got a makeshift OR set up and Eric and Holly are trying to help get it going.  Yesterday we got to do some hut calls - here Eric is taking care of a bad wound of one of the SBC clients, his vigilant dad is watching to learn how to care for it and he has been doing a good job, the leg is slowly healing but likely will need months of good care.  There are lots of wounds out here that need lots of good diligent care and cleaning - something that is so hard to do out here.
