Great progress has been made on our medical clinic. The building is up and the exterior almost complete but the interior is barely started. Soon the workers will skim coat and paint the exterior, then the interior floors, walls and ceilings will be finished. Windows and doors will be installed to secure the building and the furnishings will be put in place. The refrigerator, dehumidifier, and lights will be solar powered with a battery and generator backup. Follow our blog for the latest photos of the construction.
Sekouba Conde has been trained at the government hospital in Conakry on the medical microscope we purchased for him last year. He will use this microscope to examine blood, saliva, urine, and fecal matter to make a diagnosis and determine treatment.
Diabetes is on the rise in Guinea most likely due to poor nutrition and common illnesses such as malaria, diarrhea and yellow fever are caused by insects bites and parasites.
