Dehradun, India - Wai-Ling Eng, Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC) board member.
It was very gratifying to return to Dehradun, India and see the progress that has occurred since my visit last year. The two-bedroom house that used to be the surgical site is now the clinic where dressing changes and minor procedures are performed (a much better use for the space). The area provided by the state hospital is so much better—I can already see the possibilities of expanding this location for more work. The future of this program looks bright.
The people in this region have been relying on these services for years. Many of them have been returning yearly to have much needed work done; what would they do if we were not here? That's why I am proud that RMHC (Ronald McDonald House Charities) has been a consistent, multi-year supporter of this program that has impacted so many lives and in such significant ways.
It will be interesting to proceed to Nepal and see the possibilities there.
