We have spent 7 days at the Can Tho Orthopedic Clinic, working 10-12 hours a day, providing the highest quality care possible. As our time in Can Tho comes to a close, The Medical Director, Government Officials, Administration and Staff provided a wonderful closing ceremony thanking us for all of our hard work! Members of the Committees for Health and others addressed our group in Vietnamese. Of course our work is never quite finished so I requested Chi provide a formal translation to our team. The data for Can Tho is as follows:
Treated 575 medical patients and fit 108 prosthetics.
NOT BAD for the first week of the mission. Following the ceremony, We shared in some delicious local food, drinks, and laughter!!!! Our collaboration with Can Tho grows stronger every year. I look forward to working with my Ban Co Thoi's next year for more of the same success!!!
