If you remember this young man Sunday who had a very unfortunate situation happen to him over a year ago. Being electrocuted yet surviving. Losing both his arms, and experiencing great damage to his right leg. There was a time that all he could do was lay in bed for many, many months, not able [...]

A Special Guest

Upon arrival to Egbe guest house we were greeted with a welcome dance along with gifts of fruit, eggs, chickens and vegetables by the local ECWA church. There was so much laughter and warm greetings as the introductions continued, while women were being measured for new outfits for the special unity day on Saturday. We [...]

It's 7:30 am on day two of the new Egbe Hospital Dental Clinic.  The staff is here as well as the 10 returning patients we sent home yesterday because we were overbooked (how American).  The people are fierce about their place in queue; having to live with the incessant waiting being part of the culture [...]
