Nepalgung HBB March 2014

We were invited to participate and help with HBB. That is Helping Babies Breathe. A training program for nurses, doctors, midwives, and such to help them learn how to resuscitate babies when they are born, thus increasing the mortality rate in Nepal. They have neo natalies (dolls to practice on). It was a good learning experience. Except for the mosquitos which were horrible, it was a good trip. They had a team of Doctors and nurses who came from the U.S. to do the training. They were a fun bunch of people we got to know.
