Boulou

Boulou planting Jathropa trees.

We learned this week of the passing of long-time friend of St. Joseph Clinic, Boulou, who lived in the village of Dahlegrand.  Boulou was a great help in building the Clinic in 2006.  He was highly respected as one of the best “trench diggers,” a skill that was most important for burying the pipes that run from building to building on the Clinic campus.  Boulou was always ready to pitch in and help the Clinic staff, especially when visiting medical teams arrived at the Clinic from the US.

 
Boulou will be greatly missed.  We extend our condolences to his family and the Dahlegrand community.
