Well, my physical body is home in Ben Eoin but my mind and all my thoughts still are with the people of Zinvie. I wonder how Elysse is coping with the ability to eat and speak. Dr. Bourget removed THE largest pyogenic granuloma from the lingual of her mandible. Justine, I missed seeing you on […]

Well, my first Bourget Foundation Mission is under my belt. I hope to participate in another mission at some point. The team that Dr. Bourget put together worked very well as a group.

After all this preparation and work, this mission is coming to a close.  What a great team we had and great work.  I was told by some in Zimvie that this is one of the easiest team they had to work with since it went so so well.  Does this mean I have to keep […]

The mission is complete and we are heading home to Canada and the modern life that we enjoy without appreciating it. I had a great time in Benin, in large part due to the group Louis put together. I hope we helped in some small way but I suspect we all gained more from the […]

Yesterday the entire team spent several hours going through the storage unit at the hospital. It was in complete disarray, almost as if a hurricane had come through. Underneath piles of medical supplies were several children’s toys and baby clothes that had been sent by previous missions but not passed out. We took great delight […]

This week was a nice reminder to quit whining about our first world problems. Most of our troubles are easily solved or inconsequential compared to the third world. We should all have to see this regularly……
