After the long drive from Tedbouk, we passed Tamesna to close up and drove on to Foudouk. This is a very dynamic group of Wodaabe who have settled part of their population in a fixed location and been relatively successful in attracting government and NGO help. Here we recently built a women’s co-op house and many of our students in the solar program were from here. At Foudouk we had the luxury of a medical clinic constructed for the population by the government. It has never been operational and is a much nicer facility than we built, but ours is VERY operational. We put this clinic to good use.
Linda Lamb guarded the entrance.
And Bob and Achicha consulted patients and helped continue the training of Azarra, one of the matrons. She was able to practice on live patients which proved really valuable.
