Safe arrival and rhinos

Despite a five-hour delayed flight, the team made it safely to Nairobi on Thursday night where they would spend Friday briefing on the upcoming training and getting to know each other after months of planning conference calls.

After a fruitful day of briefing the team found the time to enjoy a short safari in the outskirts of Kenya’s capital, where they encountered a rhinoceros.


On Saturday, the team packed up for the second leg of their journey. They once again experienced some travel delays but fortunately arrived safely in Hargeisa.

The team met with Edna Adan at her hospital where the training would take place and to go over some final details that would ensure a successful week of training.

We look forward to hearing how the first day of training went!
