This summer Children's Emergency Relief International (CERI) led its first medical mission to Coatzacoalcos in Veracruz, Mexico. The goal for this trip was to conduct a medical clinic in one of the impoverished villages of Coatza where CERI is initiating its new Child Relief and Support Program (CRSP).

The CRSP utilizes child sponorships to reach school-aged children in order to meet their physical and educational needs. Physical needs met through CERI's CRSP are food, clothing and shelter, while also providing support for educational, social and spiritual development.

The mission this summer reached over 500 children and families with much-needed primary medical care and over 1,500 prescriptions of vital medications and vitamins. All in all, CERI's medical mission was an enormous success at laying the ground work for our new Child Relief and Support Program.

Thank you for your continued support of this project!
