Hi!

First of all, we hope you and your family are well and safe.

Here in Un Buen Grupo De Amigos, as everywhere with this new pandemic, we had to make some changes and adjustments on our plans and we would like to share them with you.

Our Medical Care Days Program ran through the months of January and February, taking health services as well orthoses as wheelchairs, walking sticks and walkers, to those who requested it and justified the use of them, to the communities of Jolalpan (January 18th and 19th) and Tehuitzingo (February 8 th and 9 th). However, the outbreak of COVID-19 in Mexico was confirmed in the last days of February, since that date the number of cases has continued to increase and as a consequence, we couldn’t continue carrying out the Free Medical Care Days for the security of our staff, volunteers and the communities. With this, just as after the massive earthquake in 2017 we are in new territory, and just as then we decided to help our community.

Many hospitals in Mexico have been affected by the lack of medical equipment, in order to help hospital personnel avoid contagion and to guarantee the supply of personal protective equipment despite the high demand in the market, we launched the “Support Hospital Sttaf” campaign, opening the UBGA Collection Center in our facilities and enabling our web site with the purpose to collect medical and protection equipment. With these donations our staff put together kits of personal protective equipment and sanitary material, and delivered the to the health institutions that function as COVID-19 intervention centers in Puebla, to help protect every person exposed to contagion.

We also lent two of our Mobile Medical Units to the Cholula General Hospital and the Hospital of Traumatology and Orthopedics of Puebla, so that the medical staff could be able to perform triage safely.

We aim to continue helping the population in need in any matter we can, and to go back to the communities with health services as soon as it is safe again, that is our passion and our motor. As the whole world is changed by this pandemic, we thank you more than ever for your generosity in this time of need.

Some other relevant results from our January and February Medical Care Days are:

356 - Medical patients

146 - Dental patients

72 - Obstetric or pelvic ultrasound

70 - Electrocardiograms

32 - Health Promotion Workshops

5 - Delivery of orthosis

242 - Total Free Medical Treatments

On September 26th, 2017, the first medical care day was organized by Un Buen Grupo de Amigos after many communities were strongly affected by the earthquakes that took place on September 7th and 19th. More than 2 years have passed since then, and our work has not stopped; once a month we visit a community that continues suffering the consequences of the 2017 earthquakes.

Today we would like you to meet Pablo, thanks to people like him who volunteers on our Free Medical Care Days, we have been able to keep on helping these communities.

 

“As a volunteer, I think it is very important to bring health services to low-income communities. More, because we give attention to everyone who needs it, we don’t discriminate anyone, people just have to assist to receive the attention they both need and deserve. It is a great experience because we go to small towns, we learn about their culture, we get to know how people live and the people we attend are grateful for the service we give. This experience has helped me value everything I have in my life.”

With the help of your donations, our staff and many other volunteers like Pablo, we have been able to beneficiate more than 500 people in the past 3 months, with medical and dental assistance, as well as our Health Promotion Workshops.

Thank you so much!

Continue to provide health services in areas of high marginalization

 

Thank you for believing in this great project, let's keep teaming up!

 

 

Thank you for remembering for us the elderly, I had 7 children, but they all live in the United States, although they support me, I do not want to worry them, the one who has come to my community the Mobile Medical Unit to give us the medical consultation, you they are taking care of my health, because of the money that my children from the United States send me, I use it for my support, apart from that because of my age I can no longer go to the City to heal me. Mrs. Yolanda N.

 

God bless all the medical team that comes with the Mobile Medical Unit, thank you for caring about our health and bringing medication. Come back soon! Mr. Jose N.

Continue to provide health services in areas of high marginalization

 

During the last three months, A Good Group of Friends, A.C. has developed the Days of Free Medical Care in areas of high marginalization, providing health services with quality and warmth to vulnerable population, is the Estate of Puebla.

 

The Mobile Medical Unit offered health services of first and second level of medical care, dental interventions, dental prostheses, electrocardiography, ultrasonography, physical rehabilitation, dental prostheses, as well as the delivery of complete treatments (medications) to patients attended and orthoses as wheelchairs, to those who requested it and justified the use of them.

 

The selection and programming of locations was carried out according to recent reports of the National Council for the Evaluation of Social Development Policy (CONEVAL) in localities whose poverty index is high.

 

The Foundation provided home medical consultation to patients whose serious state of health should be at absolute rest. For medical care, a basic team, made up of a doctor, a nurse and a health promoter, traveled to the home with medical equipment, nursing and medicines. The objective is to provide an integral, professional and very human service.

 

La Fundación sigue realizando un intenso trabajo humanitario con su propio equipo de médicos, dentistas, enfermeras y promotores de salud. Continuamos brindando servicios a personas en áreas fuertemente afectadas por el terremoto ocurrido el 19 de septiembre de 2017, que a la vez son localidades que sufren los efectos adversos de la actividad volcánica (localidades ubicadas cerca del Volcán Popocatépetl). Así mismo hemos brindado servicios de salud en localidades que sufren alta marginación urbana y a población infantil vulnerable que vive en casas hogares.

 

Cuando atendimos a personas que viven cerca del Volcán Popocatépetl, en el municipio de Atlixco, Puebla, ciudad que también fue afectada por el sismo del 19 de septiembre de 2017; las personas arribaron al lugar donde realizaríamos la Jornada desde horas de la madrugada, para acceder al servicio médico.

 

La Señora Luna nos dijo: Qué Dios les bendiga y fortalezca para que regresen pronto!
