He had a chance to talk to a couple of the patients, to hear from them what this once a month (currently) clinic means to them:
Maria Angela Martinez says she walks 30 minutes to get to the clinic. "Before, we had to go to Comayagua because there is no health center here. Now, we have the ease of just coming to consult in the clinic. The care has been good because my daughter Aby Perez (six months old) got over her cold."
Maria Azucena Andara says "having medical attention here is good because before you would have to go to Comayagua and get up before dawn and be there two days because if you didn't get in the first day."
Exolina Moren lives close, she told Marvin "Travelling to Comayagua required a lot of time and more money because you had to pay for transportation and a hotel in Comayagua to get seen the next day." Her son had pneumonia and recovered thanks to a brigade that came to Sampedrana.
Marvin also shared that there were people there from Rio Blanco and El Horno...a three hour walk from the church.
