Sorry to have been incommunicado for so long! Have just emerged from ten days in 'la brousse'. First a few days with a river ambulance along the river Niger with Mamadou Sinayago, the president of the NGO Pakou, which brings medical care to remote Bozo encampments- the Bozos are the fishermen tribe of Mali. Some of you have kindly donated money to this ambulance, and therefore the trip was made possible. Keita, on leave from the hospital, acted as the medical officer this time, and consulted and treated over 200 patients mainly children who suffered from malaria, the biggest killer in Mali. Posted by Picasa
