Fall New Member Celebration
Moravian College Honduras Delegation Spring 2017
Here’s a picture of our group in action, running a pharmacy for the medical brigade:
On March 6 2017 nine Moravian College students embarked on a medical mission trip to Honduras, Central America. Leaders for the trip were Dr. Beth Gotwals, Assistant Professor of Nursing and Dr. Pamela Associate Professor of Nursing. Since 2009, Moravian College has supported a delegation to Honduras as a service team or trip associated with a global health course. Our partner for this trip is MAMA project mamaproject.org , a local NGO based in East Greenville PA. MAMA is a network of health and wholeness for the rural people of Honduras who are lacking the basics such as clean water and sanitation in addition to health care access. The team works each year in a medical brigade which provides medical care as well as Vitamin A, Deworming, Screening for Malnutrition, Dental Services, Micronutrients and donations of school supplies, reading glasses and toys. In each village 2 families are selected to receive concrete floors. Assisting the MAMA staff to lay a cement floor is one of the most profound parts of the project each year --- seeing the real world rural poverty and helping to impact health and well being of a family through a concrete floor. Statistics of note for our week of service:
- Over 300 people received medical attention
- 362 people received deworming medication
- Nutrition screening resulted in identifying 88 malnourished children requiring follow-up by in country MAMA project staff
- Over 1,100 people received micronutrients
- Eight families received concrete floors (2 per village)
