Screening is going really well here in Togo. Having said that we were planning lots of smaller screenings to prevent large crowds, some of the screenings attracted a good number of people. Many waited in line from the early hours of the morning to be seen, this being their only hope of having surgery. This has meant that already our surgery slots are filling up and remaining screenings may have to be cut down from what I have heard. There are always those that we have to turn away which is a struggle for the screening teams and crushing for the people concerned, but praise God that as our slots fill that each day more and more lives are being changed.
