20 BLF Volunteers from the UK as well as 65+ local volunteers from Yonibana were responsible for this project. The UK team was made up of: 6 General Doctors, 1 Nurses, 1 Engineer, 6 Pharmacists, 3 IT Specialists and 3 non-medical volunteers. Most patients were tested for Malaria which has seen a huge drop in numbers from the initial project undertaken in 2006.
To ease the flow of patients during the registration process, the local volunteers spent much of their time in creating several sheltered waiting areas. Bamboo and natural materials from the vicinity were used to construct these areas. It helped to keep the patients out of the burning sun. This was the way the villagers were more involved in improving the hospital areas thus giving them a sense of belonging towards the whole project.
