Barry had sent out word to a colleague at the distant aid post of Keke that there was new funding available for some Trachoma operations. The response was overwhelming, and 17 patients piled on to 3 horse drawn carts which pulled into Djenné hospital last Monday. Barry operated all day and well into the evening, and today we visited the patients, who had all gathered under a great tree in a village close to Keke. He was also able to execute another five operations. To see these people and to know that the operations had made a real difference to their life was a very moving experience, and I felt very proud and privileged to be able to have been part of this.
