A team of 23, comprised of doctors, nurses, dentists, physical therapists and support personnel traveled to La Villa de San Francisco, Honduras for a medical mission. While in Honduras, the team provided medical and dental care to 2,626 Hondurans. In addition, the team also distributed 750 water filters to the families who sought care through the clinics in order to reduce the number of intestinal ailments the people experience from drinking water that is contaminated with parasites. Honduran health officials have stated there has been a 90 percent decrease in these types of problems since the start of filter distribution in 2009.
