Our counterpart organization Mano a Mano Aviation was at the Cochabamba airport at 6am on Saturday, April 23rd preparing for their weekend health clinic (jornada) with 8 volunteer dentists traveling to Rurrenabaque to provide dental care for the community. We are grateful to Dra. Nohelia from Amigos da Saude for lending 2 portable dental units for the jornada.

Why We Have An Aviation Program

Mano a Mano’s aviation program has 2 primary programs working with Bolivian communities that have minimal access to health care: emergency rescue of ill and injured individuals, transporting them to urban hospitals for life-saving treatment; and weekend clinics for which we transport volunteer health care professionals into remote areas to provide primary medical & dental care.

103 People Received Dental Care During the Jornada

Over the 2 days of the jornada in Rurrenabaque, we were able to provide 154 dental treatments for 103 people.
