Hi Shane, I've been really enjoying the blogs of Eyelidoc
who is an ophthalmologist from Oklahoma traveling with a medical team to provide eye care/surgery to rural communities in Swaziland. It is riveting to hear about the logistics of setting up their clinics, evaluation stations and the strain of making their way by jeep into these communities. They also help with a shoe program (sponsored by a wonderful company) and how they go about sizing the kids feet then giving them new shoes! (If that doesn't leave you half laughing and half crying nothing will). There interactions with the locals is heartfelt especially the "gogos" (grandmothers) who have been left in charge of their grandchildren due to illness/death/disease of their parents. People who're doing wonderful work in the world!
