We have used up most of our medications and the doctor here in Tanna has restocked us with some more medications since we are treating all their patients with them. The people were quite happy to have rice and tins of meat after 6 weeks of eating roots, which are now rotting. We resupplied with 4.2 tons of food in Lenakel, Tanna and brought it up for two remote villages in conjunction with Samaritan's Purse organization.
We have been wiped out, so we are spending Saturday and Sunday recovering from steady work and transport days. We are at a nice black sand beach with a sunken landing craft beached onshore to explore and climb and coral by the rocks to explore. We are sitting out some strong winds in a relatively protected harbor. Monday we are using a truck from Samaritan's Purse to go run a clinic in Lavis, a remote village in the NW Tanna with an aid post that services a large stretch of outlying communities. Maybe as early as Tuesday, weather dependent, we will make our move to Erromango Island to bring food, tools, medications, and run clinics. We also have a shipment from the local hospital here of emergency supplies to go to the aid post in Erromango. Communications and shipping have been limiting their ability to get back to business as usual.
We are doing well. Overall though, this has been a very interesting experience for our whole family and I'm glad we came.
