We left Kitale on Thursday the 26 and drove 7 hours to Narok where we did a clinic. We saw about 75 patients. We saw Ntayia, the  boy on crutches we had sent to an orthopedic hospital 2 years ago. He was excited to see us and we were happy to see he is doing well.


After a night at The Seasons hotel (definitely not the Four Seasons) we visited an orphanage and then stopped to help enroll a street girl selling bananas in school. This is the heart of Masai country and we drove 2 hours to a tent camp Loche Mara near a Masai village. That afternoon we saw patients for 5 hours - brucellosis, HIV, ear infections, skin boils, and malnutrition.


Today as our reward we took a game drive in Masai Mara Game Park.

Tomorrow we drive to Nairobi and say goodbye to the California team and then on Tuesday we head for Rwanda and Congo.

David & Cherry,

Real Barefoot Doctor job of work! God bless you. I know if you would have had the right gear nearby, you would have drained the arm and started the drugs immediately. A far cry from Medical City Dallas.....Love&Light from SurfaceCity. Val
