Planning for Furlough

A family picnic by the river. (We don’t have many family pictures since we have barely left our home since March…Covid!)

The Macad family is planning for a year-long furlough next year!

This will be the first time since starting this clinic in 2007 that we will have spent more than a few weeks away from it.

It is time for our family to get a break and to introduce our kids to the other half of their cultural background. Maybe now they will be able to understand some of their mother’s strange jokes! 🙂

We are starting the planning process already even though we don’t plan on leaving until July 2021. There is a lot of things to get in place and a lot of duties that need to be delegated. I have confidence in my local staff to run this clinic just as well if not better than us. Who knows, maybe they won’t need us to come back!

We have a few construction projects that we are wanting to complete and have running before we leave. Through generous grants from Samaritan’s Purse Canada and Samaritan’s Purse Germany we are going to be able to build an outdoor public bathroom ( a must for these Covid times!) and 2 extra postpartum rooms so that we can keep patients socially-distanced from each other after delivery.

Keep up to date here and on our Instagram page (aggmckalinga) as we prepare for next year.
