2014 Mission Destinations: Lebrija, Piedecuesta, Giron, and Berlin

Bucaramanga by night

Bucaramanga by night

Francie, our founder and president, accompanied Gisella, our medical coordinator, on an exploratory trip to the small cities near our mission home base of Bucaramanga, Colombia.  Gisella is from Bucaramanga and has led mission trips to the area for many years.

Our missions have the support of local medical leadership and we are welcomed by the First Ladies in the region, who are happy to support health care and education for their most needy people.

Lebrija school

A school in Lebrija that will serve as our clinic.

We are adding a key feature to our missions to plant seeds of change and improve health outcomes through education.  We will give nutrition consults to every patient and encourage exercise by conducting exercise classes at the clinic sites.  In addition, each patient will receive vitamins, a toothbrush, fluoride painting (for the kids) and those in need will receive eye exams and glasses.

We will visit Lebrija, Piedecuesta, and Giron on the outskirts of Bucaramanga and travel up to Berlin at 10,000 feet.
