The team was back in the ring for round 2 today with a few adjustments and suggestions to our game plan. The team huddle this morning was full of positive vibes and we were ready to hit the ground running! After 20 minutes, the well oiled machine was off and running with the sight and sounds of lines of people waiting for all the different stations. We must thank our interpreters who also work at mzuzu hospital for executing our game plan with such ease and increasing our ability to communicate with the patients exponentially. They are the MVP’s of the week! The collaborative effort increased during day 2 as everyone got their bearings on their positions. As the clock wound down to the last seconds, we finished 97 patients and fit 48 hearing aids which is a significant improvement from our overtime performance yesterday. Day 3 is sure to bring us new opponents and challenges, but as this team gets to know each other, we are more and more unstoppable. We are all still so humbled by the gratitude and warmth we are shown by all the patients on a daily basis. Some waiting hours in line , it can’t be easy, but they demonstrate humility and patience throughout. It just goes to show that effort to help a fellow human goes a long way at the end of the day.
Match 2 – from June 6
