Jan. 15 (Friday) Sunny

At 4:00 a.m. I was woken by a series of dynamic shakes, which I soon realized as aftershocks that I am getting used to.

The doctors were split up to work at the mobile clinic and at the UN headquarters.

Yesterday's work made us welcome and popular in front of the prime minister's office, where more people gathered for treatment. Our working efficiency has increased after the prime minister's office found several English-speaking volunteers to help us as interpreters.

Our major task is cleaning the wounds of sand and dirt and distributing antibiotics to stop festering.

In order to prevent an epidemic outburst that usually accompanies earthquakes, we have started to disinfect those who have come for treatment.
