An anonymous donor from The Columbus Foundation has given a $1000 contribution to Medicine for Mali. Thank you!
Altrusa of Columbus has generously donated a 2nd grant to MFM for teacher training and tutoring for the 2011-12 school year in 4 schools with a total enrollment of 2.000 students.
The MFM 2011 trip was a great trip. We got many very worthwhile projects done. the med clinic saw 2000 patients. 500 micro loans were given out, mainly to women. Installation was complete on 3 new clean water systems. Public Health projects are moving ahead with great vigor, including the first written village health records, villages using the information in the Vital Stats books to determine and find solutions to their particular health problems, and increased training for the village matrons who assist in births.
The MFM teams had many new faces this year. The groups really worked well together from the beginning. It was soon nearly impossible to tell the new people from the more experienced MFM volunteers. This was great.
