We made a visit to the Ouelsesebougou Hospital this afternoon to show the expedition team around. This hospital has been built since we started coming here 10 years go. It was completed around 2013 or 2014. It’s still mostly vacant. Handwashing stations like the one above greet patients and visitors at every entrance.
We’ve made some good friends here over the years. One is the Dentist, Dr. Coulibaly. He is a kind and good man who makes do with what he has available. Last month when our medical team was here, our Dentist, Dr. Johnston, worked with Dr. Coulibaly, doing mostly extractions.
Here’s a look at the OBGYN wing of the hospital. Our daughter, Claire is putting together an OBGYN expedition at the end of this year to come and do surgeries here. They’ll focus on fistulas and prolapsed uteruses. These pictures are for her, as they make plans for what they’ll need to bring.
