Two months after the quake, the clinic now sees an average of 140 patients per day for a wide range of conditions, from the injured to those with chronic conditions. Emergency procedures are performed at the clinic, along with vaccinations, rehabilitation for the wounded, and in-patient care for people needing longer stays. All of this is being offered in open air tents and under tarps.
