Haiti - Limonade

The following day we headed to a rural town called Limonade. It was about 30-40 minutes outside Cap-Hatien.
The countryside.

We set up our clinic in a Judo gym. The patients laid down on stacks of gym mats.

We saw a mixture of adults and children. We did extractions, sealants, and ART, which is atraumatic restorative technique. In other words, we use hand instruments instead of a drill to do a filling. It's painless, so it doesn't require anesthetic. We saw a total of 50 patients that day.

Our day in Limonade was a great experience and was just like what we expected from this trip.
