Our Return to Santiago in February

We are excited to report that we will be returning to Santiago in February with our largest group yet!  We will have physician assistants, nurses, physician assistant and public health students and many non-medical volunteers on our team.  We will see the children in the schools and provide a physical examination, dental screening exam, apply fluoride varnish and anti-parasite medication, measure their growth over the past six months and check for anemia.  Since we expect to see over 500 children, every volunteer is needed!

New this year - we are supporting a community health fair for the parents and siblings of the school children that we see.  We will offer educational material and supplies focusing on dental health, nutrition, mental health, anemia prevention, diabetes, exercise and child development.  In addition, we have partnered with a number of local not-for-profit organizations within the community and are grateful for this opportunity for collaboration.  We are expecting over 500 people to attend this event unique to this community.

We will also end our inaugural diabetes prevention program for women with a celebration and welcome a new group of women into this important education program supported by Mayanza.  We are looking forward to networking and receiving updates from our many partners on the ground in Santiago.  

Thank you so much for your support.  We could not make this impact on the health of so many children and their families without your help!  We look forward to sharing our success with you when we return in February!

Many thanks! Muchas gracias! Maltoix!
