We are very lucky to have a wonderful coordinator and Dulce did a great job!
Now I could meet our new doctor, Luis and drive to all our villages, check the botequines with him, talk to the brigadistas and examine patients together with Luis. Dr. Evertz had helped us choosing him and he trained him for some weeks so that without any interruption our work continued. Luis is seriously involved, very skillfull and even performing small surgeries in our Ocotal clinic.
Towards the end of my visit suddenly, within days the Corona pandemia grew rapidly. Oficially there were only very few Corona cases in Managua - up to today...but we decided to teach the local community how to protect themselves with very simply hygenic actions. Our team started to produce face masks and we distributed them together with soap and some desinfectant to our brigadistas.
We also decided that we will not be able to continue with our teaching weekends in Ocotal, cancelled them and intensified the teaching during the doctors visit.
Our botequines, the visits in the villages and our clinic in Ocotal continue as usuall! And are needed even more in this difficult times!
