June MEDCAP

This month's MEDCAP was a little different. We focused only on providing medical services (no dental, optometry or veterinarian services). It worked out well - we were able to see 298 people without overloading any part of the system.

The school was in a rural community full of very friendly people.


Me and my NCO at the entrance of the school


The KPC providing registration and screening services.


A local doctor providing care.


A KFOR doctor providing care.


In a positive change from previous MEDCAPs, a KFOR doctor stepped back and supervised 3 medics while they took care of the people from the community. Here, one of my medics checks on the health of a child.



At the end of the day, I noticed there was a manageable amount of litter in the school yard and a lot of people available to pick it up. Once the kids caught on, everything was cleaned up quickly.
