Yesterday we was an amazing example of the sense of community that we so often experience here in Kalinga.
We were at the point in the construction of our new clinic that we needed to pour the cement for the second floor. Now here in Tabuk we don’t have big fancy concrete mixers that are able to pour cement 50 feet above ground- it is all done by hand! Individuals hauling bucket fulls of cement up ladders and onto a platform. Also, it all has to be finished at one time.
So I’m sure you can imagine our delight when a jeep load full of men arrived from the village of Pakak. 18 men volunteered for the day to get all of the cement poured in one shot.
Thank you guys! We couldn’t have done it without you!
