Cyclones, hot weather, new borehole



It has been a busy two weeks at the hospital.  It has also been the hottest March I have ever had in Zimbabwe in my 38 years of living here.  We had 1 ml of rain in the whole month.  Everyday it has been 100+ degree heat and down to low 80’s at night.  It hasn’t given us much energy to do much but work and sit by the fan!

In mid-March there was a huge cyclone that came in through Mozambique and hit our Eastern border.  Many people lost their homes and all they had, including over 200 dead.  It was quite a tragedy for our country.  Many areas got rain from the cyclone-we got a bit of clouds for two days, but not a drop of rain!  

Many people dropped us emails to see how we did through the cyclone.  We were fine and not even a drop of rain. Thanks for all of you who were concerned for us.

Every Friday morning after devotions we have a continue education for a medical staff.  The nurses take turns and our doctors and visiting staff to present clinical cases.  We always have fun and have a great learning time.  Even here we have to have continuing education units for our license renewal.

On Friday, Major went to Harare to pick up a hand borehole pump that we are reviving from an old drill.  Our visitor that has been here since early February, Serva, has been telling her friends at home in NYC some of the needs we have here.  One answered the need for this borehole and sent $4,500.  We are in the process of putting it in now which will be behind our waiting mother’s shelter and will help them and our staff get water when our boreholes are off.  Thank you to such generous people who keeps us going and reach so many people with help.

Elliot, our other visitor who has been here since early February got back from a 3-week excursion to Malawi, early on Saturday morning (2 am)!  We are glad to have him back.
