photos - hydrocephalus - part 1

This young hydrocephalus girl came to visit one day with her mother.
She is a smart girl and her mother is going to put her into kindergarten. This young girl is an example of a "post-surgery success"! Pray for her as she starts a new chapter in her life of going to school.
The first week in September was a special time because a neurosurgical team from St. Louis came to do surgeries at the Bernard Mevs/Project Medishare Hospital. The first day we were there there was a UN patrol walking the street in front of the hosptial.
The UN will be starting to reduce their forces here in Haiti. This week President Martelly will speak at the UN General Assembly meeting. The goal for Martelly is that one day Haiti has their own security force and that the UN will not need to provide security for the country.
Here is a view of the gate in front of the hospital.
