photos - plastic surgery cases + students studying

Jameson Glezile is an 11 year old boy who is part of our school program here at Coram Deo. He had surgery to repair his cleft lip in January 2008. Now he hopefully will get his cleft palate repaired by the plastic surgery team.

This young boy and his mother came all the way from the mountains of Kenscoff to seek medical care. He has a secondary skin infection caused by scabies which is a bug that lives under the skin. Hopefully the medicine he received will cure the infection and the scabies. We also treated him and his family for worms. The family left their home at 4 in the morning to start their travel to get to Coram Deo.

Lourdie Aldor is a girl that we helped a couple of years ago get surgery to amputate her leg because of a tumor on her knee. She now walks again with a prothesis. We recently made a visit to her family's home. Lourdie is standing on her father's left.

Paulna and some of her classmates are preparing for exams with their teacher Erismane Dorelus. Erismane (Mackenson) is the teacher of the Grade 5 class at a local mission school. Our facilities are used after hours by students and teachers for homework and tutoring. We give the Lord thanks that we are able to help other missions and students out besides our own here at Coram Deo.

Jn. Eddy is going over some math problems with some other secondary students.
