One of the purposes of our being taken to hosptials and sites like this is for the local Rotarians to sell us on establishing joint projects to provide support. I means a lot more to see these places "in the flesh" than to read a brochure.
During our trip we have seen many people including women breaking bricks in to small pieces. At first we though that they were recycling old bricks but many seemed new. On our ride to the river and village we saw massive chimnies and kilns with bricks all around. It turns out that being a tidal plane they have no rocks. So, the make bricks from local clay and then break them up for morter used in construction and and for road surfacing.
