The medical campaign was a success. 5 communities were given much needed medical care as well as love and support from outside of their communities. These ongoing campaigns are a vital measure until full and ongoing care is realized nearby these communities. They provide the care that is often out of reach and otherwise gone without.
Another part of our ongoing plan to provide medical care to these native communities is the emergency care and transportation that is provided by our missionaries as needed. Unfortunately, the old truck that they used as a rescue vehicle, as well as for their primary transportation for everything else they do, can no longer be fixed and patched together. It has served faithfully for many years now, but now must be replaced. This will now be our primary focus, out of necessity, until they have a vehicle to again be able to respond to the emergencies in the communities.
We are grateful for your help and support as we strive to see these poor communities gain access to the healthcare that they need to live healthy and fulfilled lives.
We continue to plan for our spring medical campaign that will travel to the various villages to bring healthcare to the people of the tribe. This campaign will help them to meet basic medical needs that are often not met, and if they are require travel and large expense. Our missionary partners who live with the tribe also continue to provide first aid and aid to obtain emergency medical care. We continue to move forward as possible with the greater vision of having a clinic and long-term medical care right within the tribal villages. Your support makes all this possible and we are grateful for all that you do!
Because of your support we are able to continue to work towards improving the long-term health of the Native Peruvian Tribe that we serve. Building and staffing a clinic remains the large and long-term goal. While the pandemic has made major projects extremely difficult, we are committed to seeing these long-term goals fulfilled. In the meantime, we have been providing emergency and first aid as needed. We are also planning for a medical campaign in the spring to continue to serve and improve the healthcare needs of the tribe. Your support is extremely valuable to this poor tribe.
