This trip to Namuga, is a fact finding mission, that will involve us all arriving at Santa Ana airport at 1:55pm Wednesday 8th November, and catching 2 bananna boats for the 45minute trip to Namuga (up to 90 minutes in bad weather).  It involves open ocean, and can be rough, and life vests will be provided on request.  Namuga hospital is a hospital that has just been built, and part of this mission is to get donated medical and surgical supplies operational (e.g. anaesthetic machine).  The accommodation for staff has not yet been built, so volunteers will be roughing it staying in the hospital. All volunteers are to bring their own inflatable mattes, and mosquito net. Cooking facilities are basic (open wood fire), and rice and basic food will be provided for volunteers.  There may or may not be electricity for this trip. Scrrening of patients will occur at 3pm the day we arrive (Wednesday 8th November), and surgery under local anaesthetic and spinal will occur all day Thursday and Friday the 9th and 10th of November, with our departure from Namuga at 8am on Saturday 11th November by boat to Santa Ana, and departure from Santa Ana airpot at 11:30am for  Kirakia.
