Clean up Day at Chidamoyo

At our last Heads of Departments meeting it was suggested that we have a Clean up day for the hospital that the community could come and help.  We thought that was a great idea to give the hospital a thorough cleaning.
So yesterday (Saturday)  morning we had over 150 people that joined us.  Each head of department came and took the number of people they needed and supervised and worked along side people to thoroughly clean.  We had 80+ year old grannies to 5 year old children helping, and all of our 9 month pregnant mom to be came out to help.  They scrubbed the labor ward top to bottom!  Even our doctors cleaned up their office!
They worked for about 3 hours and then we had everyone sit to thank them and then gave them all a drink and then they were off!
We all worked along side each other and we were laughing and had a great time.  Everyone at the end  said let's do this every month!  I am not sure about that it was a bit chaotic at times!  Now we can
plan better what needs to be done!
I was the only casualty.  As I went to check on people working in Pediatrics, I slipped on the ramp and  fell, and dislocated by little finger on my right hand at the second joint ending up with it at a right angle.  Just got up walked into the next ward where Dr. Kajese was making rounds, he pulled it back in the place, and off I went to continue work.  It is a bit swollen, but no really painful !
