Waves of Health Medical Missions in Cabarete and Dajabon a Success, Nov. 2012
In November 2012, the American non-profit group Waves of Health completed their ninth medical mission to Dajabon and their second in Cabarete, Dominican Republic. Waves of Health member Dr. Boni expressed his gratitude on behalf of the organization, stating “Thank you to all of our supporters for making our mission a success. In 6 days of work, in 4 locations, we evaluated and treated over 1500 patients. Thank you all once again!”.
A group of thirty doctors, pharmacists and nurses conducted the two-day mission in the villages of Cabarete (Isalabon, and La Cienega), providing free medical care to over 500 local Dominican and Haitian residents. Their efforts were supported by Peace Corp volunteers, the Dominican Army, Cabarete Town Council department, House of Waves surf school and residents of Cabarete who graciously lent their time and language skills to assist with the mission.
A heartfelt thank you to Waves of Health and the Cabarete volunteers for their service, dedication, and generous help to communities in need.
