WOHF had the privilege of supporting Dr. Steve Albright and his team of 27 U.S. and Guatemalan volunteers while they traveled to the village of El Pamarcito!
For five excitement-packed days, Dr. Steve and the ‘Dental Units’ (as dubbed by the community), served about 100 patients. They gifted 500 hygiene kits donated by WOHF and provided dental instruction to the community. Paula Cipolla shares, “In appreciation of treatment, several patients came back to share with us their modest cache of a watermelon, flower fruit, and bananas.”
