We have arrived! We had a long day of travelling, but could not have asked for better luck in the amount of support we received from local Honduran people who picked us up from the airport and helped us manage our many suitcases full of medication and medical and dental supplies; as well as our very gracious military transport, who flew us from La Ceiba to Gracias. We were thrilled to see the same pilot that supported our journey last year help us again! We are now settled in Gracias, Honduras, ready to depart for our first day of clinic tomorrow!
In the morning we will split into two groups: Three team members (a Pediatrician, Occupational Therapist and Physiotherapist) will go to the CRILE (Centro de Rehabilitacion Integral de Lempira) and assess children with developmental and physical rehabilitation concerns; while the other members will head into the mountains to set up a mobile Pediatric Medicine and Dental clinic.
Over the course of the week, we will introduce you to members of our team, and highlight some of the stories we encounter across our clinics. Thank you everyone for your support!
