Toothbrush distribution in our La Sabana Clinic
This holiday season, the best gift you can give is the gift of health!
We are really excited to be a part of the GlobalGiving community!
As the rainy season closes in on us here in Panama (with a vengeance...12 days of continuous heavy rain!), both our patients and all of us are trying to stay dry...this is the season for mud, fungal infections, pneumonia and fevers and the communities we serve endure with incredible dignity and courage.
We have a lot to be thankful for, so at this time of celebration of our good fortune please remember that you are not alone--your brothers and sisters are here too.
Please take a moment to celebrate your good fortune by extending a hand to those without--the cost of a sandwich every month can change lives forever.
The greatest investment in the future is investing in health! Happy Holidays everyone!
"Seek always to do some good, somewhere. Every person has to seek in his own way to make his own self more noble and to realize his own true worth. You must give some time to your fellow man.
Even if it's a little thing, do something for those who have need of a man's help, something for which you get no pay but the privilege of doing it.
For, remember, you don't live in a world all your own. Your brothers are here too." --Albert Schweitzer Nobel Peace Prize winner, 1952
