Operation Walk Boston is getting ready to leave for Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, on April 10th 2013.
For the past year, we have been working with our colleagues at Hospital General de La Plaza de la Salud to screen patients for surgery, develop educational and research programs and build the infrastructure to embark on our seventh mission to Santo Domingo.
As I write this post today, our volunteer team is finalizing all the pre-surgical screening necessary for our patients. Our cargo has arrive in the hospital in Santo Domingo. Our educational and research programs are being finalized and the group is very much energized to start another amazing mission
The work we do has been possible because of continued support of our donors and our volunteers. It is through their generosity that we are able to provide joint replacement surgeries to individuals in the Dominican Republic who otherwise could not afford these surgeries.
The work we do is dear to our hearts and we do it with great dedication, humility and gratitude. We will post our journey on this blog as we start our mission. Please join us daily to see the amazing work done by our volunteer team and our host team in the Dominican Republic.
Our cargo has safely arrived in Santo Domingo
