8/8 Peru update: April Korneli
We were all waiting for today. Today we actually started what we travelled here to do. As we pulled into the clinic we were greeted by applause from the hundreds of people lined up all the way around the clinic. The mayor of Peru hugged each of us as we got off the bus and made our way through the crowds of people lined up to see us. It was overwhelming how grateful they were for our presence. When we started the clinic we had to be adaptable and use the Spanish we knew and the skills and supplies we had to help each patient as best we could. I have received so many hugs and thanks for even the little I could contribute today. I’m excited for the rest of the clinic and for the patients I will see next!
