Our mission team loved their long, hot, busy, happy and productive week of medical and eye clinics in Estanzuelas. We saw 1467 Estanzuelans, most for two or more clinics. Our providers prescribed for those who needed medications - and everyone went away with vitamins and a toothbrush, at minimum. We referred many patients for specialty treatment or diagnosis within the National Health System. We signed up our full list for cataract or pterygium surgeries in April in the Hospital Nacional at Santiago de Maria. More than 100 families are being invited to our capacitation session for receiving a water filter.
But most of all, we carried away with us bright memories of faces and voices, people who touched our hearts, smiling or howling children, beautiful seniors, hardworking men and women.
Here are a few images from the week, bright memories:
