End of summer teams
Next week is our last short-term team of the summer. It has been an incredible summer! In Armenia Bonito we have hosted tons of teams and a whole lot of folks coming through to serve the people of Armenia Bonito. During this time we had 11 Kids Club programs, 11 English classes, and 50 clinic days. During the clinic days we served over 1351 patients. We also hosted two education days for the local kindergarten and elementary school and taught 190 kids on dental hygiene, parasites, handwashing, nutrition, and for the 6th graders we had a class on abstinence.
