Mid-May, we had a team of Canadian nurses join us for a week of ministry. This was a week of firsts here at the jungle hospital. This was our first team of only nurses, so put on our thinking caps in order to come up with something new and creative for them to do. Our nurses helped us host our first ever women's health screening here in our village of Rio Viejo. During our screening, we checked Blood Pressure, Blood Sugar, Weight and BMI on nearly 100 women. WOW! Two new diabetics and two new hypertensives were discovered and are now being treated at our hospital.
Later that week, we hiked up to the villages of Nueva Suyapa and La Lucha for some school visits and camping. Finishing these two schools, helped us complete a 100% first visit to all of our schools here in the Cuenca. This is the first time that has ever been done.
