We have started the clinic at Delmas 24 again. It takes time for the surrounding tent cities and slums to hear through word of mouth that clinic is open, so for the past few weeks we haven't had many patients. I don't mind though. It gives me time to complete a very thorough inventory of our pharmacy (thank you, US Airforce for providing me with such ample supplies that I am still, 8 months later, using them!) and to train Sendhie and my other staff with some useful skills. Plus, I love having the time to chat with my regular patients, showing them that we care about more than just their physical well being. A little bag of tylenol only lasts so long, but a trusting relationship can be for life.
