Produced by
Anita Woodley

TRAVELING TO N’DITAM

Dr. Georges Bwelle works in Cameroon, West Africa. He has a day job, but on the weekend he heads into the bush with a rented van and medical supplies to do surgeries for people in remote villages.

Today, we’ll hear Anita’s story of returning to her village, and Dr. Georges' story of bringing health care to rural Africans.
