  BRECHAS DEL MIRADOR, BAJA, MEXICO -- March 2013

FOR IMMEDIATE  RELEASE

Board member visit report

Two of our board members, Ted and Debbie Wheeler, recently visited Pastor Frank and Detra and the work in Baja to evaluate needs and discuss plans for the future. The following is a short report by Debbie:

"In March my husband, Ted and I visited Brechas del Mirador and stayed with Pastor Frank and Detra Avila. It was a real privilege to spend a few days on the “front lines” with these fine people who are pouring their very lives into these poorest of the poor.
We brought more than a thousand dollars worth of medical supplies with us to be used in the clinic. The supplies were donated by Hands of Hope Northwest, Inc. where I serve as Office Manager and Volunteer Coordinator (www.handsofhopenw.org).

We met Dr. Dulce Martinez and witnessed a clinic day. Fifteen patients were seen that day, most of them infants and toddlers brought in by their mothers, some of whom were as young as 13 years old! Many of the children have respiratory infections because their mothers cook over an open fire right inside their one room shack. Additionally, three girls with serious eye problems were identified and will be referred for further treatment."

The women are also being educated about hygiene, infant care, and the importance of health screening, as well as helping them understand their identity in Christ, and how that can have a real impact on the issues they face every day.

Dr. Norma Prado is teaching these classes every two weeks. While the mothers are in class, the children are taught Bible verses and songs.

Detra reports that 32 women just attended the class on newborn care and prevention of diarrhea. In addition to the women, there were 54 children to take care of during the hour long session. Dania, one of the clinic helpers, has a real gift for teaching the children.
