Schnieder, Michelin, and Yolandez are 6, 4 and 2 years old respectively. They live across the street from us in a banana tree garden in a little one-room hut. They have one bed, without a mattress; it is just cardboard on top of the box springs. They have a few dishes and clothes stuffed in a basket. There is no father. They all had a bad cold and respiratory infections. We asked our clinic physician, Doctor Wanitha, to take a look at them. Each of them needed medication. Schnieder, the oldest, has a hernia and needs an operation. We are praying and hoping to help him.

Fr. Lesley, the pastor of St. Ann’s in Kap Wouj, has four chapels that he serves in the area. He has asked us to bring Klinik Manman Angela to these places. Because each day we go to a different place and Wednesdays are reserved for Kap Wouj, we will visit each of these chapels on a Wednesday.
Last Wednesday, we went to St. Rock Chapel. Not many cars are in this area and only foot paths have been made. It is a very poor area, and the road to get there is difficult. Thirty-eight patients were waiting for us. Sister Giovanni from Livonia, MI, is with us for a few weeks and is helping us work in the clinic.
