The First Day, Screening Patients

Arriving at the hospital - we were impressed with the modern facilities.

Patients waiting outside the hospital since early morning. We were expecting about a hundred patients, but ended up seeing close to two hundred!

Many had traveled great distances from outlying areas so their kids could be seen. They slept on mattresses on the floor of the hospital.

Say "ahhh"

Patiently waiting.

For me, the most gut wrenching part of this whole mission was turning away patients after our operating room schedule was completely booked.

Please refer to Annabel's post below on October 1 Screening Day 9/23/07 for more photos of screening day.
