Come join us for our club’s 7th International project with the Rotary Club of Los Barriles, Cabo del Este March 14 through March18, 2023. Members, friends, and families are again invited to participate.

During our last three visits, more than 400 school children in the town of Los Barriles and families in remote outlying areas were screened for glucose levels - as a precursor for diabetes - blood pressure, vision and dental. Records were kept and follow-up visits were held for those with immediate medical needs. The Rotarians brought eyeglasses to distribute to those needing them for reading. In addition to the town of Los Barriles, the volunteers also drove to the isolated communities of El Cardinal, El Campamento and San Bartolo where there is no health care. 
 
Members, friends, and families are again invited to participate March 14 - 18.  The exact schedule is still being coordinated with our fellow Rotarians in Los Barriles.
 
We have also provided funding to the small government health clinic, Centro de Salud, to support expansion of the facility as well as physiotherapy equipment and tools to treat patients with chronic osteoarthritis pain.
 
Each year our Club provides funding to address expressed needs of one or both of these clinics and individual members donate additional funds.
 
 
Expect to depart March 14, work March 15 and 17, with a relaxation day on the 16th, and return home on the 18th.  This year we are aiming to do school testing on 2 days. Wednesday is definite and we’ll work either Thursday or Friday for the second day.  One day participants will be free to enjoy the town of Los Barriles and the surrounding area.
 
We will stay a short walk from a grammar school and start on March 15 around 9 am. and work until 3:30 or 4 pm.
