Life in the Desert

About 2 years ago, L’Hôpital de Guinebor II, was yet to be opened and looked like this:

Now, however, it looks like this:

The recent rains have transformed the desert, but as the hospital has opened up, it has also attracted businesses to capitalise on the captive audience, homes to be built and a little community is growing on a daily basis!

Of course, closer up, within the hospital, lives are also being changed (excuse the cheese!). This little boy is 6 days old in this picture and is just about to undergo major abdominal surgery.

Here, a month on, you can see that he is growing well and although there is still future surgeries ahead for him, he now has a future.
