Main aim of the charity
Providing medical care to rural communities outside of Jalapa City GT.
How the employee got involved and why
My daughters coerced me into going to Jalapa years after they had volunteered. Twins, Leeah (a nurse) has been every year since the inception in 2011, Linzee (an educator) has been twice. I have been going since 2014. Up until the door closed on Delta flyt 904 ATL to GTL, I was praying some emergency at work would get me out of it. Didn't happen, since I've been at least once per year, and sometimes twice. Life altering.
What work does the employee do for charity?
Everything from working in the farmicia at the clinics to construction. The medical staff and the doctors from the US do a great job of ministering to the medical needs of the communities served. Not just the bi-annual trips to restock and shore up the local staff, but daily servants at the clinics and to the people of these communities. From my first trip in 2014, it was apparent that there was more needed than medical treatment. Root cause of majority of the chronic illness is dirty water.
