Melanie just called at 10:30 PM Kenya time Tuesday. She reports that her roommate is trying to sleep while she is busy calling us with the latest mission news. The group has arrived at the refugee camp in Maai Mahiu and spent a long work day setting up the dental clinic. Melanie reports that it looks great and is ready to receive patients tomorrow morning. There were all kinds of equipment and voltage challenges, but everything is ready to go.
All went well at customs clearance in Nairobi , actually smoother than loading the baggage in Toronto where the group was challenged by having bags with the wrong dimensions! Dr. Ira has joined the group and we now have a full volunteer contingent ready to begin the mitzvah work alongside our Kenyan partners, Marafiki.
There seems to be good cell reception, and I expect to hear more news from Melanie as the clinic begins its work.
