We then visited a hospice run by the Sisters of Charity to provide comfort and some times recovery for the very ill poor. It was a sobering sight with several beds containing the shrouded bodies of those who had died in the morning.
After lunch we took a bus trip to Humanity Hospital at Ghosepukur outside Kolkata. This Rotary supported hospital was started by a poor woman whose husband died for lack of medical care. Eventually one of her sons became an MD and runs this small charity hospital in the country. I presented him with one of the battery free flashlights provided by our club.
Later in the afternoon we went shopping and Ann Lee, one of our leaders had her arms painted as is done by Indian women for major occasions such as weddings.
Tomorrow we fly to Delhi and then on the next day return to the snowy US.
