Getting Ready for School

This afternoon three teen girls, a nurse and I  helped 6 families get ready for school. I lost count of the number of kids we worked with…oops.  We were in the village for 5 hours and I was impressed how hard the team worked.  We scrubbed hands, feet and faces.  We checked for lice and then deloused.  I took shoes too small for kids at camp and passed them out to the iddy-biddies.  We passed out school supplies and backpacks.  It was a great time and a true time to serve the people of the village.  We had a nurse with us who took the opportunity to check boo-boos and give vitamins to the families. One volunteer and some of the kids took the pictures.    Enjoy the pictures, the captions will explain much more!
