It usually takes about an hour after the helicopter overflies the village until people start coming to the clinic.

The crowd starts to gather at Maduvula 2. Mostly mums and babies. This place is as dry as Weetbix!
The water from the village well turned 'salty' and is unsuitable for drinking, so folks travel 15km to get their drinking water. The local school teacher told me he gets by on 5 litres of water per week!
