Today was International Children’s Day. This day is celebrated in Guatemala. The city of Parramos, where our clinic was had a huge celebration. The clinic today was in a church. The health issues that were commonly seen were parasites, diabetes, cold and coughs. The team saw a total of 307 patients.
We had a great lunch at the Centre of Hope. The children who were in school loved seeing us to practice their English. It was very nice to see all their smiling happy faces. These children all looked great in their school uniforms. On another note, one of our translators, named Jose Luis, is not only a translator but a tailor and singer. He has his own tailoring shop that he runs with his wife. He also was the star at a benefit concert for the survivors of the volcano eruption. Wow, amazing!
