Each year AIL Ministry provides a weeklong medical clinic in the cloud forests above Oaxaca City in the Sierra Mazateca. Hundreds of people from the surrounding communities, some walking for hours, come for a chance to see a doctor, dentist, optometrist or a counselor. In addition to licensed medical personnel, we need translators, pharmacy technicians, intake people, hair stylists and people who are able to do whatever is needed in the name of Jesus on this important and vital mission.
Many of our patients, especially children, are dealing with severe malnutrition, lots of issues of food and water borne illnesses, severe digestion issues and chronic pain.
