Medical Mission

The team was comprised of fourteen medical providers and an efficient support team of business people, educators and college and high school students from the Delmarva Peninsula, Oregon, California and Florida.

In three hospitals in Managua, La Merced provided medical care in the specialties of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Ear Nose and Throat Surgery and Orthopedic Surgery. In the clinics, La Merced provided services in general dentistry, primary care, plastic surgery, ear nose and throat surgery and orthopedic surgery. La Merced treated over 500 patients during this mission.

Community Outreach

La Merced provided support for the Physical Therapy Clinic for children with Cerebral Palsy,the local Soup Kitchen and Votech Center. Such success would not have been possible were it not for the donations by our sponsors, listed in left side bar. Please utilize their services and, if you ever receive the opportunity, thank them for their support.
