Since our last post, we welcomed the De Sousa family to Kalukembe for a week before Christmas. Dr. Eduardo and Jocelyn (FNP) both were a delightful help in patient care at the hospital and they also helped in our continuing medical education two-day seminar at the end of the week. They serve at a surgical hospital in Lubango, and we are very thankful for their loving hearts for both our patients and colleagues. Jocelyn's parents and her four children also kept our kids busy with crafts and cookie-making when they were not out playing.
The nursing housing renovation project is also underway! Hope you enjoy those and other pictures below!

|Priscila giving a talk on vesicovaginal fistulas at the same seminar. Most of the seminar was focused on Maternal and neonatal health and care. Audience participation was as high as ever. . . especially because almost everyone acted out different patient scenarios Priscila provided. We are thankful to the Fistula Foundation and individuals who support ongoing education efforts!|
