1,500 patients in four days.
Thank you to our 50 volunteers who joined us on the Mexico Medical Mission trip this year! Over 1,500 patients are seen in just four short days and for many, it’s their only medical care all year. We are so grateful for all of the donations made as well that allowed us to serve over 1,500 people in the impoverished areas of Ensenada, Mexico. In addition to providing medical care, because of your generous donations, we were able to give out:
• 1,100 bars of soap
• 541 tubes of toothpaste
• 1,890 toothbrushes
• 100 reading glasses
• 190 prescription glasses
• 250 sunglasses
Here is an update on our July of 2019 trip:
We will be collecting donations of new full-size tubes of toothpaste and new large bars of soap to send with the Mexico medical team to Ensenada. Please contact our Mexico Medical Mission Coordinator, Mary Beth Volberding to arrange to drop off donations of this or any nature: firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you.
In the impoverished areas around Ensenada, Mexico, medical care is hard to come by. Our homegrown travel mission takes over 50 people each summer to four locations around the city to offer free medical care and prescription medications, as well as a variety of items often unavailable: toothpaste, toothbrushes, shoes, hats, and more.
Medical professionals from around the country volunteer, translators help them all communicate, and many others help put the whole thing together. If you are a medical professional in any field, speak Spanish comfortably, or just have a heart to serve an underserved population, contact Mary Christensen at: email@example.com
