Today was the last day of clinic. The providers saw their last patients and sent them to pharmacy to receive their vitamins, dental supplies, and medications. We gathered together as a group to take photos of medical students and wish them farewell. Many hugs and heartfelt goodbyes were exchanged as the team wished the students safe travels home. We thanked all of the volunteers from Mundial Extendido for their help. The each department took inventory and packed everything away. The team had satisfaction of a job well done, yet couldn’t believe how fast the week went.
It was a blessing to serve the people of San Lucas Toliman on this medical mission trip. In total, 655 people received medical care. The level of impact goes beyond the number of people helped. People came together to serve those in need and lives were touched this week. We can show God’s love despite the barriers we face.
Please pray for safe travels home.
