KSB Mission Trip – Day 3 – Serving the People of Vinocanchaon, Peru

Kidney stones, liver cancer, diabetes, Down’s Syndrome.  These were but a few diagnosis made by Drs. Reckamp, Appenheimer and Nag in the village of Vinocanchaon, Peru.

The original plan was to serve a half-day clinic.  Based on the turnout, this was modified to a full day in the office.  Polaroid pictures were a big hit with the kids.  There was an overwhelming expression of gratitude from those receiving services.

None of us could stop talking about the day as we took the 30 minute commute back to the house.  I am incredibly impressed with our team.  Social Worker Julie Ammon provided fluoride treatments all day to dozens of children and adults.  Pharmacist Luke Hebert provided much-needed medications.  Nurses Marissa Frost and Linda Clemen did a great job of caring for the people, and Board Chairman Doug Lee and I were responsible for high, weight and BMI (thank goodness for BMI apps!)

An exhausted group of KSB members are excited to continue our mission early tomorrow.
