With the help of our supporters, the San Basilio Parish in Medellín, Colombia was able to expand the services offered by their medical clinic to include oral care. What was once considered a luxury for many people of the parish, has been made more accessible through your purchases and donations. Services from routine cleanings, to more complex procedures and even surgeries are a reality for those who need it most.
“It sounds like a story out of a novel, but dental care can become a luxury in the context of our parish community,” Fr. Oscar said.
These services are able to be provided at low or no cost to the patient, based on the determined level of need. Meanwhile, the medical clinic and adjacent pharmacy continue to provide preventative and diagnostic care to the community at a similar scale of low or no cost to the patient.
Through years of dedicated hard work, and with the help of our supporters, the San Basilio parish has been able to create a space for the community where a person can access medical care, job skills training, dental care, a food kitchen, and even an internet cafe. By being able to provide these various tools needed to improve and build upon one’s life, our brothers and sisters in need will have the resources they need to lift themselves out of poverty. Thank you for your continued support as we strive to protect the dignity of the human person and to spread hope to those in need. You are helping make a REAL difference.
