Clinic Inauguration

Dear friends, 

We just returned from an exciting trip to Guatemala. One of the focal activities of this trip was the formal inauguration of this clinic building. 

Although we've already been using the building informally to see patients for a while now, while construction was finishing up, this inauguration gave us the opportunity to unite the entire community to celebrate the conclusion of the project. In attendance were officials from local government and school and hundreds of community members.There were speeches, dances, and food. The activity was organized by Wuqu' Kawoq's regional staff and by the local women's action community that is in charge of running this clinic and its associated activities. 

We wanted to take this opportunity to thank you so much for all your generous support in getting this project off the ground. Even though the clinic is now operational, there are still giving opportunities, as we still have a some clinic supplies and furniture that we would like to add to round out the space. 

As always, feel free to drop me a line if you have any questions at peter@wuqukawoq.org.
