Live Now Clinic - the health assistants
She comes to Tinkong every day trotro (minibus). During the weekends Judith spends time to finish the last part of her education.In fact: this job is part of her internship.
Cynthia already has finished her health assistant education. Ze moved to Tinkong together with her little daughter from Kumasi, about 4 hours drive, to get this job. Both Cynthia and Judith are with Live Now Foundation for one year now and are enjoying their job.
Everyday is full of suprises. A boy and a girl enter the the building and walk to the desk. The fell from their motorbike. Judith is shaving the wounded chin of the boy. He is gonna need some stiches. That's some work for doctor Mac. In the meantime Cynthia tries to call down the girl. She treats her superficial wounds, but it hurts the girl quite a bit.
Judith and Cynthia are very fond of their job. It's getting all the more busy in the clinic. Every month more people find their way to the Live Now Clinic.Patients come from further and further away. And everybody who once found his way to Live Now Clinic, comes back to Live Now Clinic. The service is good, the personel is qualified and the equipment is better. Judith and Cynthia are looking forward to upgrade this health institute to becoming a real hospital, where patients also can stay nights.
It's Cynthia's big wish to come to Holland sometimes, just to look how health care works in Holland. Of course this is just a dream. Most people in Ghana have never left their country.
