On Thursday I went to the Bongo Hospital to evaluate the impact equipment donations have had. Last winter, this hospital serving 85,000 people with 1 doctor tragically had an electrical fire that burned down their only operating theatre. The temporary one hosted by what was their dental ward I can proudly say is operating largely using GMH donated equipment. Thank you for donating to GMH and helping to empower the Bongo Hospital in a time of need!
The traditional community around Bongo is incredibly interesting. Our volunteer extraordinaire and photojournalist Hazel Vint wrote a superb article last year describing her experience with a traditional healer from here: http://hazelvint.com/2014/07/24/africas-alternative-to-western-medicine/
