After leaving the main university campus, we headed to the clinic associated with the university, where members of the community are working to supply, train, and create an prominent hospital. The medical clinic shows great promise in expanding its services, faculty, and the quality needed to both train future students and provide the community with the health care that is so needed in the surrounding areas. As a portion of Bandage For Africa $18,500 was raised towards a brand new ultrasound machine to be installed in the clinic, with a most sincere thank you going out to Possibilities Without Borders and an anonymous donor. A major portion of today's events were dedicated to operating and delivering basic operational training to the doctors and students. Dr. Brittany and her patient Will did a great job teaching the clinic members!
After a debriefing between Dr. Desplaces and the board members of the college, our efforts at the the Universite Des Montagnes were complete for this year. A heart warming exchange of contacts, gifts, and sincere thank you guided us out of the city of Bagante. And for those of you who do not know, today is officially international women's day, so to all the lovely ladies partout le monde (around the world): "Bonne fete de la femme!"

that was parading everywhere in the cities in honor
of all of the hard working ladies!
