The medical mission is over and I am now home. As the memories of it sink in. I want to thank all of you who made it possible.
Rotary Club who through grants supplied the medical equipment, medicines and supplies and expenses of the mission. And whose individual members have offered endless hours of volunteer time and financial support both through the Rotary Club and the Nomad Foundation.
Direct Relief International who have supplied medicine for both our mission in September and in February.
Eyes on Africa who supplied glasses for both missions.
Amani’s Medecine Shoppe who donated medicine.
Marla and Collie Bowers who after volunteering for the last mission, collected 6 large cases of vitamins which we all carried over as baggage on this mission–they have ALL been distributed and we continue to hear of miracles because of them.
Bob Skankey, whose tireless work treating patients, would have never happened if he had not spent endless hours in preparation. Including going to training for malaria diagnosis and treatment. I can’t write long enough to describe all he has done. Not the least of which is involving his wonderful wife Louine who ran our pharmacy.
Margaret Guglielmo who, after a canceled flight and health challenges stayed cheerful and brought her loving hand to all she treated. She also arrived with some very generous supports checks for the foundation work from her friends.
Hannah Armstrong, whose plans solidified only days before her arrival, came as a journalist to write an article on the Nomad Foundation for the Christian Science Monitor. Fluent in french, she was recruited as an interpreter and willingly fulfilled that role and any other where she was needed.
And most importantly to all of you hundreds of NOMAD Foundation Supporters whose continuing generosity allows this dedicated team to perform miracles.
THANK YOU, MERCI, TANUMERT, ABARKIDI
