Mobile Health Team Impacts Community

Health MinistryMany positive reports were received in a recent evaluation of the mobile health clinic’s activities in Cacador. The health team commented, “We noticed a big change in the children since we have been helping them. At first they were very shy and hid from us whenever we came. Now they come out to greet us with ready smiles. We have also noticed changes in their poor hygienic habits and know this will improve their overall health.” The team also noted increased willing participation by the community in projects aimed at helping others in need.

As Teresa (right), nurse and leader of the project put it, “This work requires much perseverance, which is certainly the mind set of our team. A doctor who has dedicated much effort to this project put it this way, ‘Though we have few resources to work with here, I see more accomplished than I do in my private practice in the inner city.’ Surely it is better to give than it is to receive.

The team now anticipates introducing new programs focused on women’s needs.
