Our team will be returning to the la Dalia area. This is a follow up to our 2017 trip. We will arrive Managua Saturday the 4th. The next morning we will travel four hours to la Dalia, our headquarters for our stay. Our in country hosts, Yahoska and her father Julio, are excellent at identifying areas of need. We will be joined by a Nicaraguan dentist and optometrist. This is a good trip if it's your first mission trip. This will be a small team, so, please apply early.
We will travel from la Dalia each day to surrounding villages. We will offer dental, eyeglasses, vitals station, vitamins, parasitic and fluoride treatments. We will work with local health officials to provide clean water. Our projects will also include working with local school officials to provide clean water for students. This may include light infrastructure repair. I want to thank our 2017 team members for their diligent work and helping to identify this years needs. It will make our 2018 memorable.
