Update from Guatemala

Things here in Guatemala have been pretty low-key since the last group left.

I have been busy taking two sponsored children with hydrocephalus to their doctor's appointments in a city called Quetzaltenango which is about two hours away. The national hospital there has pediatric neurosurgeons.

Julie has arrived for her 10 month internship! She will once again be examining the efficacy of the de-worming medication that is given to children when they have parasites.

PID has also been able to help a few children receive surgeries for their cleft lip and palate.
