The courtyard

This is the hospital courtyard where the women wait/sleep/eat/live/hang out. Some women are here short term, just for the weeks during surgeries. But many are here for months, and many consider this their home. Several young women have lived here for a few years. On the left you can see a bunch of beaded bracelets set out for sale (the buyers being the visiting doctors). The women sleep on bright plastic mats like the ones in the foreground.
