October Surgical Mission to Nicaragua
Did you know: Surgical missions cost Esperança $11,500 on top of what volunteers pay to travel?
Dr. Benden and Dr. Riley are traveling to Jinotega, Nicaragua from La Cross, Wisconsin. They will perform between 30 – 45 surgeries – all at no cost to the patient. Many people in desperate need of medical care can’t afford to travel to the clinics and hospitals we work in, so Esperança pays for many of these patients to travel for days by bus to the city in hopes of giving them a better life.
This will be their first time on a medical mission with Esperança.
Contributing towards a medical mission saves lives. Directly.
