Stuff animals make a big hit

When the children wake up the touch of something soft is very calming. Keeping the child stress free helps the healing.

The Abrams girl and Amanda Byers collected the stuffed animals for the mission. The kids thank you.

I don't see a runway???

The question for today. Is there a runway out there? This was asked as we watched our plane come in.

We made it back to Dhaka

This time with out delay. Team has gone it's different ways till the next mission in March.

Dhaka slums

The one of the slums in Dhaka is located alone the train tracks that wined through the city. The train uses it horn to move people and businesses off the track so it can get through. This is no way to live but it is the only way many of the people of Dhaka know how to live.

Wait for the write up on this one

This is what happened when we ask, How do you feel about what just happened to your child?

The 60 year old we help have a chance to get married again.

At 60 years old this man showed up and asked if we could help. With the magic hands of Dr Aziz he got his wish. He has four children and herds cattle. His wife passed away and he wants to get married again.

We're done!!!

Problems posting to blog

As you might guess it is very hard to get internet connection in the countryside of Bangladesh.

 

I dropped my Blackberry in the river and the hospital has no connection so posting of photos will have to

wait till I get a good connection.

 

Stay tune.  Bruce
