XRay Project Status

This woodsy-looking groundcover on our front yard berm is barrenwort, also called "bishop's hat," named (I would guess) after the shape of the leaves.

Received on the xray project so far: $3,212. We are one-third of the way to significantly raising the standard of health care on this small island. At the drop of a hat and a hundred bucks you and I could drive right now to a med station for a chest xray and antibiotic. Most people on La Gonave would have to walk many hours or days to the only hospital on that island, and even there they currently have no xray should one be required.
