After lunch, I headed to the dental station where the Among The Reeds team had begun seeing students, many of whom had never received dental treatment. Once the machines were activated, the level of trepidation increased dramatically. It would take some explanation via interpreter to convince the students that they were in capable hands.

The ATR dental clinic proceeded nearly identically to the one in Croix-des-Bouquets days earlier. Despite limited resources and malfunctioning equipment, every student that arrived for dental care received free treatment.

The hike back was met by a wonderful sunset. I took this as a good sign of things to come.
