Nicaragua Team departs October 25

It seems that we just returned from Guatemala, and already we are beginning to plan the schedule for our next project in Nicaragua.

Dr. Tony and I will be visiting Nicaragua in July to identify the five communities that will be visited by our team in late October. This will be done in cooperation with the Feed The Children Central America director, Efrain.

The Nicaragua team is in place. About one half of the 22 people involved are new. For some, it will be their third time on the team. Our team will include 3 doctors, a dentist, dental assistant, paramedics, 2 pharmacist and several nurses, complimented by several support staff. We will be joined by a dentist from El Salvador and other local support staff and translators.

While the clinics are going on each day, we will provide an exciting program for the children.

Along with medicines and vitamins, we will be distributing food and clothing.

All this takes money, so if you want to help support this project, please go to our web site and make a donation. Contact us if you have any questions.

Keep your eye on this blog, as we will be reporting activities before and after the trip.

Ken Dick, FTC President.
