Day 1 It was a long day but we arrived safely with no problems. Day 2 We helped with a Special Needs Fair today. There were 2 teams of OT's and PT's, one from Washington and one from Texas, who saw children with special needs. They taught their parents how to do specific therapies and sent each of them home with an excercise ball and other therapy equipment. They identified children who needed some equipment and the children will return tomorrow for the equipment that was designed specifically for them. These teams brought lots of PVC pipes, duct tape, wheels, straps and other items needed to design the equipment. It was amazing to see the equipment that they were able to design from all these pieces. It is so great to see how all the PT's and OT's in-country work together to be able to provide these services. The medical people provided health checks for those who are not being seen by a local clinic. We are back at the guest house and will be able to relax and get some much needed rest this evening. Thank you for your prayers.
