Mary goes home

Today we took Mary home to the one room she shares with her extended family, in the small house they share with several other families. She lives miles off the beaten track, in a community that is mostly inaccessable during the rainy season - it was a miracle that our Land Rover even made it through the deep mud. The whole community gathered around us as we arrived, to welcome Mary home and possibly to see the only vehicle that had driven into their neighbourhood since May. Mary has to continue her hourly jaw excercises for the foreseable future, and will return to the Africa Mercy next Friday for an outpatients check-up.
