Phase Two of the Bello Horizonte Health Clinic Summer 2012
The date is quickly approaching for us to head to Perú and we are all super excited! We´re prepared for the weather being a tad colder than Tampa, but other than that we don´t know exactly what to expect. We´ll be taking donated hygiene products down with us to dristribute, as well as some pharmaceuticals.
We´re flying into Lima on the 18th, and on the 22nd we´ll head up to Huanchaco. The purpose of our trip is to aid in the construction of a health clinic that will provide health care for approximately 6,000 rural Peruvians. We will also be putting together a few health cares for the community and working on the garden adjacent to the clinic.
Our parter organization is Moche, Inc., an anthropological research group, with a humanitarian focus. More information about Moche can be found at http://www.savethemoche.org/.

Wish us luck!
