Putting it all together


Laura and Paty spent Friday and Saturday shopping for all the supplies for the promotora’s medical kits and the items needed for the medical brigade. Early Sunday morning, we put the kits together. Mario Hernandez Garibay, Paty’s son, is pictured above. Though only in Junior High, Mario was an incredible help, just as productive as the adults. This is Mario’s second time helping Tia assemble the kits.


Paty is counting the sterile gloves that will go in the kits for the brigade doctors. Because Tia buys many things in bulk, we have to physically count the items for distribution. We finished on time and saw the brigade off, on its way to El Salvador, Jalisco.
