Kiambu February 2014

Hello All,
This is my first venture into the world of blogging so be patient. Things here in Kiambu are off to a great start! We have a interested group of learners which are mix of people from PINCCs first and second trips here. 
The team consists of Dr. Art Levit, Dr. Sharry Kreitlow, Dr. Harmony Schuttler, Dr. Sara Cochrane, Caitlyn Husar, and the glue holding us together Carol Cruikshank.
We have a number of patients who are HIV positive and we are working on teaching LEEP and are struggling a bit with the Cryotherapy machine but hope to have it up and running soon. This is not uncommon and if I were skilled at engineering I would design a hearty cryo machine that never broke down.
We are staying at the HeartLodge which is cozy and has internet when the electricity is up. This allows us to keep in touch with friends and family. Three of us are from Wisconsin and our families share how much snow and cold is back home. We may just stay here until April or May.
More to come as the week goes on.
Sharry Kreitlow
