I saw my first patient in the Congo today.
Her name is Yohanita Nyiahabimana. She is a 41-year old woman who lives in the village of Malehe, about an hour from Goma. She was carried out of her house by her neighbors when they heard that we were coming. There she lay on some tattered blankets, all 50 pounds of her under the unforgiving African sun.
