Today we continued with our community public health projects. Work was continued on the house building project by nailing up plastic to protect the house from water damage in the upcoming wet months. The kitchen peeled countless carrots and potatoes to contribute to the community meal.
After lunch, the group toured a hospital in Arequipa. The hospital celebrates its 105th birthday on the 11th of February and has been declared a historical monument in South America. Over the years, the hospital has suffered damage due to earthquakes. It continues to rebuild and provide the best possible care to its patients.
Tomorrow is our last day working with Father Alex and HBI. We will miss helping them serve and fulfill their mission to help the growing community of Alto Cayma. Their dedication to the poor is an honorable and noble quest to better this society. That oftentimes receives little attention and thanks. We are extraordinary grateful and thankful to have been in their presence these last few days.
