Wednesday, we returned to our partner community, El Olvido, to provide a clinic for the residents there. We were joined by Doña Gloria, a retired nurse from a nearby community. It was a great time to connect with our friends within the community, and it also gave us a chance to get to know Pastor Noe and his wife Keila a bit better. I am excited to see our partnership continue with these new church leaders.
Later, we went to the health center in Las Flores. This health center serves the region that includes El Olvido, so it was helpful to see where the people of El Olvido receive day-to-day medical care. We met with clinic’s director, Dra. Keila Yuja, who shared about some basic health care statistics in the region and her priorities for health care in the area. She is a dedicated and passionate physician who cares deeply for the people she serves.
On Thursday, we will offer a clinic in the town of San Isidro. It’s a larger community that has been without a functioning health center for a number of months, so we are happy to help fill a gap until the government provides a new clinic staff.
Thanks for your prayers and support.
