Last year, this team brought food and clothing along with dental services to Ojo de Agua. When they obtained a medical and pharmaceutical team this year, they chose to return to the same community.
We had a little more difficulty with the roads this year because of all the mud.
After several tries, the bus was able to get free, however, one of our large trucks was not so lucky. It was stuck for two days. All of its contents were emptied and hauled back and forth by our small trucks to the school a few miles away. Although most of our men were soaked and muddy, everyone was safe.
It was a wonderful experience seeing familiar faces, especially the children. Of course, the people remembered all of us and were excited to have us back.
Last year, we met 18 month old Arabely Sanchez and her family. Arabely was born with a cleft palate and badly needed surgery. The team agreed to sponsor her surgeries. When the family came back to the clinic this year, everyone was thrilled to see her again. What a difference a few caring people and a few surgeries make.
