Busamaga in 2010 – The Mobile Clinic

Friday 24th June: text message from Neil

Every single last malaria net has now been distributed. We had an overwhelming response to the mobile clinic today with Dr Neil being mobbed at regular intervals by sick Ugandans. Many, many feverish children that have tested positive with our Paracheck rapid diagnostic tests have been treated for malaria.

This afternoon Jen worked as a dispensing pharmacist in the clinic. It was a mega steep learning curve for her. We saw a really sad case of untreated hydrocephalus in a toddler. Any one know a neurosurgeon that can fit VP shunts for free in Kampala ? Martin, fancy a trip here ?

Jen had a wonderful time in primary school today – you think British class sizes are big ? She had 800 in her class today.

Our Ugandan hosts have treated us like absolute royalty. These people have much to teach the Brits about hospitality, love and generosity of spirit.
