What would you do if you needed medical assistance and did not have health insurance? Hospital Sagrado Corazon in Tijuana, Mexico partnered with Serving Hands International on June 15, 2013 to provide a medical fair that served more than 200 men, women and children. The Medical Fair services included free basic preventive health screening exams for dermatology, optometry, general fitness checkups, dentistry, gynecology, psychology, pediatrics and most impressively minor surgeries. “My mom lives in the out skirts out of town and she doesn’t have any health insurance, so I brought her here today so she could get all of the screenings she needs,” said Lucia Garcia, a daughter of a community member being served.“I think it’s a great event because it brings awareness for people about what we need to be doing to make sure we’re healthy,” shared a volunteer. For the more than 200 people who were provided medical screenings at the medical fair this year, – that’s exactly what they received, assistance with education. Sister Maria Auxilio Lemus Gomez shared with Serving Hands International’s Field Officer, “We thank Serving Hands International for their support to our Hospital. They have been an essential part in the service we provide to those in our community who need medical care. I’m proud to say we’ve been partners for the past 8 years.” Thanks to the generosity of Serving Hands International Donors and A-1 Self Storage a medical fair with maximized impact was provided to a community in Tijuana, Mexico.
