Our day began in the hotel restaurant with a breakfast buffet. We each shared our word of the day for yesterday today at the table:
We loaded onto Leonard’s bus around 9 a.m. and arrived at Solwezi General hospital around 9:15 a.m. We met with Sarah, the director of the midwifes, who showed us to the classrooms. The first class was at 10 a.m. with midwifery students. For about two hours our team taught HBB and ran through different scenarios with the students. Class ended at noon, and the team ate lunch in the classroom. Around 2 p.m. a class of hospital staff had filtered into the classroom. They participated in a more intensive teaching of the HBB program, and were certified master trainers by the end of the class because they were all graduated nurses. The team wrapped up and rolled out around 5:30 p.m. We are now all aback at the hotel relaxing and decompressing. Overall, a very successful day!
