Whew! What a busy yet encouraging and uplifting week! We welcomed a team of medical professionals from Lutheran General Hospital and Audiologists from the Chicago land area, led by the Santiago Partnership’s own Kristi Lundblad. Some were returning from previous trips and for some it was a brand new experience. However, I think all of us would agree it was a life changing and life giving week for us all! I think it was a great reminder to all of us why we got in to healthcare in the first place. A week like this takes us back to basics because everyone deserves them and not everyone has them, as we served children from Compassion centers in some of our partner churches in Ibarra and Carera. Thank you ladies for giving your time, your gifts and talents, your amazing minds and experience to help others who are under served.
