Dear Friends, and Past and Present Team Members. Please Save the Date!!!
This year is truly special as it marks our unprecedented 20th consecutive year and 20th anniversary of Healing the Children’s Medical Mission to Neiva, Colombia. In its history, The Mission’s accomplishments have touched and changed the lives of thousands of children, their parents and communities. Its unique success is the result of the special partnerships and relationships that have been formed between the medical volunteers, the Neiva Hospital and Staff, and the support and cooperation of the Colombian Chamber of Commerce.
“Our long term goal has always been to provide quality treatment programs and surgical expertise to children that might otherwise never have access to it,” says Dr. David C. Hoffman, mission’s Surgical Director, Oral Surgeon and veteran of all 20 Missions, “The tremendous support from the Colombian Medical community and the dedication of many surgeons, specialists and support staff, who selflessly have devoted their time and professionalism, has been nothing short of inspirational,” added Carlos Fajardo. who upon returning to his home in Neiva was inspired to take on the vision of bringing medical expertise to a community in need.
Despite the fact that all the professionals and assistants volunteer their time, expertise, and pay their own airfare, and many of the supplies are donated, additional funding is still required, especially to introduce new techniques, equipment and treatment. How you can help…
