TEAM SPRING BREAK
On March 10th, 9 volunteers from the United States set off for Guatemala to join with more than 40 Guatemalan volunteers for a joint Community Development and Medical Trip.
The volunteer clinicians included Internists, Dermatologists, Psychiatrists, Ophthalmologists, a Pediatrician, Dentists, Otolaryngologists, a Nurse Practitioner, a Gynecologist, a Traumatologist, and a Physiatrist. The group attended 942 patients in 4 days. The Guatemalan physicians are so enthusiastic about IEP’s work, and many have committed to providing follow up for the patients they saw during the week. This follow up is essential to the continued health of those we serve.
Team Spring Break’s all-female Community Development group installed 27 smoke free stoves and water filters in 4 days. GIRL POWER IS REAL!
The IEP Guatemala staff and volunteers spent 3 very long days organizing and inventorying all of the surgical, medical, office and kitchen supplies. Thanks to Asset Panda for providing the AMAZING asset tracking and management platform to track our supplies, our home improvement products, and even the families we are helping.
