First week of spring clinics in Lima
Last week was the start of MEDLIFE’s spring clinic season with 41 volunteers from Queen’s and Laurentian Universities of Ontario, Canada. Over the course of 4 days of clinics, the volunteers were able to serve 368 patients around Lima.
Volunteers visited 4 different communities around Lima.
All 368 patients were able to consult with a doctor. In total, 172 of the patients were children.
290 of the patients recieved medicine after meeting with a doctor.
Gynecologists were able to preform 52 pap smears to screen for cervical cancer.
Dentists and volunteers were able to serve 113 patients throughout the week.
Volunteers worked with children while parents visited the clinic. They taught handwashing and toothbrushing techniques and handed out 253 toothbrushes.
We thank all volunteers who came out to Lima for a week of learning and serving!
