Five of us will travel to Juanjui, Peru, on January 16. In addition to Eliana and myself, there will be two nurses and a Bio-Medical Engineer. The visit is at the invitation of the Medical Director of Region 1 Hospital in Juanjui and the office of the Minister of Health for Peru. We will be surveying and inspecting the facilities at the hospital in preparation for a full medical mission in the Summer of 2010. All this has come about through a request of Luz' Dad, Hilmer, who asked me last year if we could do something to help raise the standards of healthcare in their home village.
We will keep you posted on the success of our scout mission and the planning for the future. Many thanks for your continued support of The Luz Fund.
