The crops were ruined. The rice plants were small and brown, the banana plantations were caked in mud, millet stalks broken, cornfields washed away. A church built by a river had collapsed into the embankment. There was no area unaffected. We were searching for communities where we could set up programs to help kids work through their traumas.

We have had a good, though busy 4 days of work here already. Dan, Duane and Mark went to the Renault Sunday School and Feeding program on Sunday, while I attended the services at the hospital and then saw patients the rest of the day. Monday, we did 4 hysterectomies, a couple of them quite difficult due to advanced cancer, difficult body habitus and scarring. We then had a lady show up who had had an abortion 7 years ago as the baby allegedly was deformed at 5 months, then had trouble getting pregnant again but now was at term and had tried for 36 hr to deliver and was stuck as the baby was too large for her pelvis and had fallen into distress. We took her back and did a C section, admittedly it is hard for me to let Drs. Moise and William struggle to get the little one out and wondering at what stage I step in to help, as they need to learn and each struggle helps them prepare for when I am no longer able to be there as backup, guide and assistant. I was about to take over when they got the little one out, he was sluggish as lots of meconium and his head was wedged in the pelvis.
