The project in Mauritania has been underway for a week, with around a hundred people coming in daily for examinations and treatment. Due to the absence of an electronic patient management system, we had to rely on manual efforts to maintain order. Thankfully, a local head nurse took the initiative in assisting us.
Every day, head nurse Sidi picks up a pen and paper and arranges the patients in order for us. From that window, he reads out the names of the patients in a powerful voice, granting them a long-awaited number. After that, they enter the consultation room one after another.
In addition to our colleagues from Hong Kong and local volunteers, we are also very grateful to the local hospital for providing us with the venue, assisting in the promotion of the project, working hand in hand with us to bring light of hope to the patients.
