PROJECT – To visit the Tsimane Communities
It is time to return to the interior to visit new communities, almost passed one year from the last Medical Mission Trip, it was in the Maniqui River, a beautiful experience.
In this new Medical Mission Trip that will be from April 28 to May 03, we will visit 5 indigenous communities with 391 families in total; this time we will go by land.
The name of the communities is:
- MAJAL with 44 families
- JAMANCHI l with 26 families
- EL TRIUNFO with 85 families
- TACUARAL DEL MATO with 128 families
- LOS MANGUITOS with 108 families
We will work with Dr Romulo Urquiza and the doctors that work in this area, these villages are part of the territory that the doctors of the Bolivian Health System work during the year, but for the distances and the scarce resources, the doctors can’t visit the communities often and there isn’t dental attention in these communities.
13 people will travel in this Medical mission trip: 3 doctors, 4 nurses, 2 dentists, 1 physical therapy, 1 missionary doctor and 2 logistic assistants.
We will leave Santa Cruz by bus and after the Triniday (city) by taxi to the communities. The doctors of the communities will work with babies making the vaccination, doing the checking in pregnant ladies and doing the treatment to up 60 years of age people.
Us, the ASDEIH team will work with children up to 5 years old until 59 years of age. We will do in first place dental attention to everybody, young and adult; the missionary doctor will do the checking to everybody and will treatment with nature and traditional medicine. The nurses will teach the 8 Laws of Heath Remedies.
During the medical attention we will give to every family a Bible and a step of Christ book and after all the activities finish, we will work with the children, singing with them and telling stories of Jesus. Meanwhile, we will work with the adults teaching them how to use their Bibles.
