Medical Short-Term Teams in Nicaragua
Article submitted by Brenda Rose, Field Coordinator in Nicaragua
In the month of March and April two medical teams came to help out the people in the mountains around Matagalpa, Nicaragua. The first team consisted of pharmacy students from the University of Florida. They were able to attend to many people in areas that have no access to medical care. They also learned how to work in difficult situations where they had no access to medical testing. It was great having this team back. Great job!
The second team came from Trinity UMC. They also were able to care for patients in remote areas and got to care for people that they had met last year. This team had a doctor, several nurses, and an eye doctor. It was so fun watching people’s faces when they could see for the first time in years. They were also able to give fluoride treatments to many of the children. Both teams had a fun time zip lining at Mombacho.
