Welcome to our organization. We are a group of individuals who enjoy the fulfillment of improving the lives of others.
Our next trip is planned for June of this year. In response to the specific current requests of our hosts down in Nicaragua, we will be performing specialized hand surgery, knee and hip joint replacement surgery, general surgery and urgent care medicine. In addition, through collaboration with University of Maryland Eastern Shore, we are introducing to the Nicaraguan people the discipline of Pharmaceutical Science. Lastly, La Merced will support the Marilac school through a literacy program.
Our Fiesta (on June 2nd) was very successful, as we raised more money than last year! Much thanks to the Fiesta committee: Veronique Diriker, Shirley Blackwell, Julie Parrish, Laurie Pearce and Tina Perrotta.
