Storyline

John Carter arrives in the Congo to find that Luka Kovac is away at a distant clinic administering vaccinations to the local population. He also finds appalling medical conditions. Too few nurses and doctors, limited equipment and few medical supplies are par for the course. That aside, he gets s great deal of satisfaction from the work he does. He meets Gillian, a Canadian nurse, and learns that she and Luka have become close. He tries desperately to save the life of a severely wounded man which pays later dividends when their camp is invaded by rebel troops and their lives are threatened. Written by garykmcd

Nurses tell the fever temperatures in degrees Fahrenheit, however it is likely that in Congo (and almost everywhere else in world except USA) the units used would be degrees Celsius. See more »

Kisangani (#9.22)
13 April 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

They actually made an episode about Carter and Luka's volunteer work in Africa. We see it more from Carter's perspective who arrives in the beginning of the episode and leaves at the end.

They showed pretty well in such a short episode of a fictional TV show what challenges one faces in Africa and how bad the situation is even with volunteers coming, but the lack of medication and sources makes even less serious diseases critical.

But as Luka said at the same time when vaccines arrived they pretty much saved 5o lives each in one day. The vaccination part was great, very sweet how Carter tried to speak French.

The scene with soldiers is also very sad and they did it well by not translating what they were saying so we can feel more of how clueless Carter must have felt
