Delay + Delay + Delay = Cancel = Still in the US
Oh, the horror! All of the anticipation, and perhaps a bit of anxiety, for 9 of our Gambia team ended in disappontment - at least for today.
Unfortunately the travel gods were not on our side today and we missed our flight to Brussels. Fortunately the rest of the team is in route and we expect them to arrive in Banjul as schduled. For those of us still in the US, the good news is that we were all able to be rebooked to leave on Monday and will reach Gambia on Tuesday - a few days behind schedule but we will miss only 1 day of clinic.
As frustrating of a day as it has been, our clinic leader Dave Berumen, Annette Austin from OneSight, and Julie from BCD travel worked very quickly to find us alternative travel plans. A successful clinic has many participants many of whom operate behind the scenes far away from the clinic sight - so thanks to everyone who helped us today and we look forward to joining the rest of Team Gambia on Tuesday!
