This is a difficulty that the client encountered during the rainy season – the bridge that has to be crossed to get to the Petté Hospital.  You have to walk with the moto 20 minutes on foot.  At the bridge you pay 500 francs for the moto and 200 francs for the sick person to cross.  These are the expenses. As well, the bridge is difficult to cross. VODEBO pays the costs of the crossing as this is part of the transportation costs. If you are not able to cross you have to wait up to 4 hours for the water level to drop.  The bridge is very dangerous and a person was killed there.

The client was stuck in bed and didn’t have this poster.  However, recently, she put this poster up. She asked her volunteer to take a picture of the poster because it was through the support of the lamido [traditional leader] that she had the means that she had –  nutritional and financial support – before she received VODEBO’s support.  She worked as a housekeeper at the lamidat.  The lamido knows her status. This is important for her.

Before I was bed-ridden.  Thanks to the volunteer who came to my aid.  It is because of his advice that I agreed to go to the hospital to get tested.

Thanks to the volunteer who educated me on how to take the medicines without fear.  With his counsel I have accepted them and have started to eat again.

I go to the pharmacy to re-supply.  I am accompanied by my volunteer to where they show me how to take my medicine.

I have regained my health thanks to these medicines that I take.

I suffer a lot during the rainy season due to the state of the road.

This is where we pay to pass in the rainy season.
