Doctors Patch Up Wounded Soldiers

Dr Nancy Wood writing from Bunia:

On his recent trip, my husband [Dr. Philip Wood] spent one long evening repairing about nine holes in someone’s abdomen, and just as he was leaving to come home he dealt with a soldier who had wounds in his back and backside from a bomb. All of these injuries are evidence that there are elements of insecurity by those who live and create havoc right on the border of Congo near the foot of Mt Rwenzori. Here in the Bunia market we notice there is no rice from Oicha/Beni being sold, nor are there any lemons.

In Philip’s absence Dr Sami had his own patient with gunshot wounds to the chest and both thighs but none of the bullets went inside the patient.
