Mango Tree Clinics

Thursday, February 24th, 2011 |

  Both yesterday and today I went with Dr. Prine and his group to a couple of villages to have a make-shift pediatric clinic there. We went there along with the dentist and his assistants. When we arrived at the villages we were introduced to the Chief of each village to ask if it was okay […]
