Helping Puerto Rico
For part of my winter break, my sister, mom and I are all going to Puerto Rico. It’s not a vacation. We’re going down to help the side of the island that hasn’t been given as much help because it’s more rural. We’re helping in a medical clinic. My mom and I have done the clinic before in Appalachia. While we were there, we basically helped run people around because neither one of us have any medical training. We also had a friend who was running a lab there and we were checking people in. This organization is phenomenal. It’s called RAM – Remote Area Medical. They took over a fairground and they had every single department there that you’d have in a hospital. They had orthopedics. They had a lab to get tests done. They were giving dental care. They were making eyeglasses on the spot. Now they have a clinic down in Puerto Rico and we’re very excited to help. We’re just going for one week but they’ve had a clinic there for a month.
