 Busy, busy day in Samfya.  We were in the nursing office at CHA, walking in at 8AM as usual, and the line of people was out the door.  We saw over 140 patients!  It turns out someone announced over the local radio station that the American doctors were in town - we never ever saw so many people!  Plus we had to do a training for the Home Based Care volunteers on wound management, seen in the pic above.  Here Mwewa is an unfortunate 21 yr old with a severe chronic wound on his leg, likely osteomyelitis.  We tried to teach the care workers how to care for wounds like this and when to seek doctor treatment.  Mwewa needs prayers that it will heal.
