I have just showered off the sweat of the day and flopped into bed with weariness. It was a good day. The usual hour and a half of bumping along in a truck (at least we weren’t in the back) to reach Nueva Armenia (the site of the new Maternity/ Child clinic).
I presented the A Better World sign along with cards of greetings from those that have followed and supported the clinic progress.
The clinic is pretty much completed and they are just waiting for the equipment to be transported from Tegucigalpa. We were proudly shown the ante partum area, the labor area, the examination rooms, the delivery room and postpartum. There are showers! With hot water! I expect most of the moms that will use this facility have never had a hot shower.
Afterwards we were hosted by a local family and treated to a “Sopa de Gallina” lunch…. Chicken soup with wonderful local vegetables, the whole chicken, rice, hot/ fresh tortillas right off the grill and homemade fresh cheese.
Sopa de Gallina is the ultimate company lunch here in Honduras.
