ADWA, MEDICAL MISSION

June 7-14 Helena accompanied a WHFC Medical Mission to Adwa, Tigray region. She spent most of her time doing triage at the Atsede Mariam Heath Center, assisting the primary care physician, and assessing gaps and challenges of the Mission. Accommodating more than 250 underprivileged patients who during the mission receive heath care free of charge,  the week in  Adwa was an extraordinary experience.
