Monday to Friday in the early morning hours, people start gathering at the clinic shelter. At 7:00 a.m. they are led in a devotional and prayers. Patients coming to see the doctor or dentist are charged a token amount in Lempiras (US$2); medicine is included at no additional cost. Typical patient cases seen at the clinic include: upper respiratory infections, gastrointestinal ailments, parasites, diabetes, hypertension, and dengue fever. Frequently, visiting doctors and health care workers expand the clinic’s services to include such things as eye and ear care.
Hope to Walk, an organization that works to make and give prosthetic legs to local amputees, has also begun working at the clinic. For more information about their work on campus visit https://hopetowalk.org/
