Myanmar Diary - update 2
The saga of three go wild in Myanmar continues, Otherwise known as ‘The German woman, the English one and the British East African Indian’ Sounds like the beginning of a joke....’How many acupuncturist does it take to…?’ Answers on a postcard please....
Following the opening ceremony at the hospital this morning where we were welcomed by the Hospital staff and met the students, we worked in the purpose built acupuncture unit where we saw over 40 patients in a 2 1/2 hour period. 28 Doctors undertaking the Acupuncture course divided into three groups headed by Jinal, Kirsten and Sarah and the queue of patients extended outside the door and down the street. I’m reliably informed that it was a quite start and the next days will be busier, once word get around that we are here!
Following lectures in the afternoon we strolled to the village, making a new friendship with the monk pictured. Despite the language barrier we managed to communicate in the international language of ‘Manchester United’.
We wish to extend our deepest thanks to the acupuncture suppliers and organisations who very generously donated equipment for the project including; Synergi, Phoenix, Dulwich Acupuncture , Herbprime, and Balance Healthcare. Everyone was overwhelmed by your generosity, we thank you from our hearts for the much needed equipment.
