Progress in Surgical Capability

It's been quite and interval since I last posted here.  In that time, we have seen the construction of a new extension on the Health Centre where surgery can be performed under better conditions.  Two new operating rooms, plus a recovery room with 3 beds, locker rooms, a staff lounge with three adjacent offices, decontamination and sterilization rooms.

Our first laparoscopic cholecystectomy

So the theatre is functional.  We are grateful for all the support given to make this possible, especially for the amazing fundraising done by my mom, Aileen Saunders.  Now we are beginning the work on Phase 2, which will include a 3-bed ICU, Labour and Delivery Suite, two private rooms, and a nurses' station, as well as some storage.  Hopefully this will also be functional before the end of the year.
