Today the team spent eight hours cleaning, unpacking and organizing medical supplies and setting up two operating rooms  in anticipation of the weeks cases.  The rooms were in chaos when Operation Medical arrived at the hospital.  The team was a cohesive hardworking group that came together and made the impossible possible.

Our First Case

After lunch the team's first case arrived at the hospital!  A man came with a spontaneous dislocation of the jaw and with some moderate sedation his jaw was put back in place.  He returned home two hours later.

Gods Children of Haiti

Several team members had the opportunity to visit the Gods Children of Haiti orphanage today.  The orphanage started 20 years ago by Ann Hume currently takes care of 18 children.  Most of these children have been abandoned by their patents and are disabled.
