Planning is well under way for our 2015 mission to Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic. Our surgical team at Hospital General Plaza de La Salud have been screening eligible patients for the mission. Our team in Boston has been working hard to gather our cargo, prepare our volunteers and finalize the logistics for the plan. This week we shipped 12 pallets (500 boxes) of donated patient care items and implants to Santo Domingo.
We are thrilled to be returning to our second home in Santo Domingo and to offer life changing surgeries to another group of Dominicans.
Please follow our story on our website. We will be in Santo Domingo from March 11-March 18, 2015 and will be posting daily updates on our website.
Our work is only possible because of the support of our volunteers and donors who believe in our mission and vision to enhance quality of life for individuals with joint disease.
Wishing everyone a very happy holiday season and a happy New Year!
