We always arrive in Ridoré on a Friday and the team is ready to do whatever it takes in preparation for Monday when hundreds of people will be waiting to see the doctors. Volunteers bring large suitcases filled with supplies and medications. The first couple of days are about cleaning and getting organized, sorting out the medication making sure the surgeons and anesthesiologist are set up. The first images show doctors and med students working together installing a new state of the art light in the operating room. Monday morning is a bit overwhelming when we arrive at St. Josephs and see so many people waiting but everyone takes their places without complaining and the day begins.
