Setup in Iquitos – Mike

An early start to the day today so we can make our flight over to Iquitos where we will be treating patients in clinic.

We have made it to Iquitos! We received a Police escort to the hotel. After dropping off our own bags at the hotel, we headed to the clinic. At clinic today we set up each room and stocked them with the necessary supplies. We also organized the medications in the pharmacy.

To end the busy day we were treated to dinner and a show with the mayor. The mayor expressed sincere gratitude toward us. The hospital here in Iquitos is currently on strike so patients are expected to be lined up outside the clinic to receive medical care.
