May 5, 2019: Treating Burn Victims at our Clinic
Fidele Dhan’s motivation to open a clinic came during his 2006 journey back to the land of his birth: “People kept coming to me all hours of the day and night; bringing their sick children to me, thinking that I graduated in medicine and that I could help them. I knew then that I cannot just wait until that day may occur. I need to do something now.”
Fidele's mission reached a milestone with the opening of the Clinic.
In May of 2019, the staff worked 24/7 treating burn victims.
