A New Perspective

Hi, my name is Andrea. I'm a Student Nurse from Cheyenne Wyoming, I've come to help out for two weeks in anyway that I can and to get experience working in a foreign country. In the past six days since I have been here I have seen and done so much and I never imagined that I could love strangers as much as I have come to love these people. From removing stitches to participating in a birth, I love what I do and what I am learning in the medical field. To be able to bring medical help to people that appreciate anything that you can give them without the concern of law suites and paperwork is a perspective that you don't often get, practicing in the states.

Stitches...


Redressing the cut that I removed the stitches from just a couple of days ago. This little boy comes every day to to get his cut redressed. He has the cutest smile that I fell in love with the first time I saw him.Working with him has been a wonderful experience.

Babies...


 This beautiful baby boy was born around 1:00am and weighed 7lbs 12oz. To be able to be there for his birth was another amazing experience that I will never forget, although being up till 2:00 in the morning is something that I could do without.:-)


 Interesting...


 Often times you never know what will come through this clinic and sometime even once it's come through, you still don't know what it is! Here Katie is cleaning an unknown skin disease that has slowly but surely improved over the past several months. I am amazed at the diversity of cases that come through this clinic and how they are handled by the nurses here.
