Riobamba Area Photo Gallery
By Jake Kincaid
Riobamba is situated high in the mountains at 9000 feet in the shadows of Mt.Chimborazo, the tallest peak in Ecuador. It surrounded by even higher elevation rural farming communities. MEDLIFE has had many clinics in these areas, and is currently working with patients there. This collection of photos shows some of these families and the places they live.
