Two days until Rwanda

We’re two days away.

Supplies are packed, itineraries are finalized and emails are flying as we nail down final details. There’s excitement and a touch of apprehension in the air. The truth is, despite months upon months of painstaking planning, we’re not exactly sure what we’ll come across in Rwanda. What we do know is this: we’re visiting four hospitals in Kigali, Rwanda to help them decide how to deliver health care better.

Dr. Reames and Jim GebhartWhy are a bunch of people from Oklahoma City visiting Rwanda? We’re getting that question a lot, and the answer is because we are Sister Cities. Here’s Dr. Mike E. O’Neal, president emeritus of Oklahoma Christian University in Oklahoma City and chairman of the board at Mercy Hospital Oklahoma City, to explain how that relationship got its start.

We’ll be updating this blog as our trip progresses, so bookmark us and share with your friends. And get to know us a little better by flipping through the Mercy 4 Ubuzima Team Bios Book.

Talk to you soon!
