San Miguel Health Center Requests Further Assistance from Women Here and Now (MAYA)

Fr. Jeffry Moore, President of Women Here and Now (Mujeres Aquí y Ahora), has received two more requests for assistance from the Health Center on the island of San Miguel. The first letter (below) asks for his help with contacting the health assistant in the village of La Esmeralda on the island of Isla del Rey to investigate an community outbreak of diarrhea and refer the sick to the Health Center. The second letter requests him to use his airplane to transport a young patient to the mainland to receive specialized medical care for an eye injury.

One of the goals of Women Here and Now, in “empowering women and improving life in vulnerable communities” includes supplying needed air transport of suffering children from the Pearl Islands to mainland Panamá. Thus, Father Jeffry will be flying to San Miguel and boating to La Esmeralda to help with both needs of these island communities. We’ll keep you updated as these situations unfold. Your prayers and support are appreciated!

Translations in English are printed below each letter.

Thanking you in advance for the great support you offer to the Health Center and the different communities in the district.

Without another particular.
