IMR saw and treated over 3000 patients and de-wormed most all children. The dentists pulled over 600 teeth. The very sick patients were referred to Santa Clotilde. Despite the challenges of intense heat and humidity, bathing in river, snake and buffalo encounters, sleeping in tents, and the occasional montezuma's revenge, the group was able to focus on patient care and collaborate with the local health workers to provide care to a people often forgotten.
This beautiful newborn baby was born in the health post at Negro Urco. Due to limited space, two doctors were displaced from their room for an hour while this young teen delivered her first daughter with the support of her mother in law.
