With Dr Titi in Cikampek

A couple weeks ago we went with Dr. Titi to Cikampek (a town about 2 hours from Jakarta) where she lectured at a community center on the importance of immunization.  We were also able to visit some of the patients from her hospital while we were there.

The audience – about 100 ladies.  There are rarely men in meetings like this..

The local organizing committee – so nice, gracious and welcoming.  They gave DeeAnn a beautiful crocheted purse

We were then able to visit a couple of former patients of RS Lestari.  LDS Charities has helped RS Lestari for years with patients needing cleft lip and palate surgery, cataract surgery, etc.  They were so appreciative of the help received….

This lady had her first cleft palate surgery at age 50!

These folks had cataract surgery about a year ago.

“Pull up the porch and have a seat”!  They have so little and are so humble….

We then visited a little girl who has had the first of several needed surgeries for her cleft lip.  So sweet….

No matter how humble, they ALWAYS serve something…

After the lecture and the visits, we were treated to lunch at a nearby lakeside restaurant.

A great day spend with good friends.  Dr. Titi does such great work and we are privileged to work with her and be associated with the hospital.
