I walked in and I smelled India.
Well, to be more precise, the hospital in India. Except I'm in Africa. But there's something about hospitals... and apparently the ones here remind me of the one there.
At least... at least they were getting care. And it was free for those under 5 years. At least there was hope in that room.
Approximately 20 of us from the ship went to spread some holiday cheer. We brought a small box of props, and sheets of Christmas music. We practiced carols as we walked from the ship to the hospital. Once there, Megan introduced us and led us in the first song. Then she read the Christmas story from a Krio bible. We asked for volunteers to play the parts of the characters in the story, and mothers pushed forward those children who were well enough to take part.
