Volunteers Continue Work in Colombia

Health Education and medical clinics continue at the Max Seidel Escuela site in Colombia. On board the Comfort, 41 surgeries were performed on June 10. Here is an update from Project HOPE's onboard volunteer medical director, Dr. Ken Iserson:

Neither heat, nor rain, nor thunderstorms slowed our clinical efforts ashore. More than 1,000 patients treated each day means that a large proportion of the area’s poor are receiving care; some for the first time in years. Surgery, of course, proceeded, with the Hopie surgical team contributing mightily to the effort.
