Over the last decade Christ Community Church has developed a relationship with San Ramon, Nicaragua through Corner of Love ministires. Typically we send two teams a year—one in Feburary and one in June. The primary focus of these mission trips is on providing medical care to these impoverished communities, however you don't have to be a medical professional to participate. There is plenty of good work to do.
Prior to each trip we gather medical supplies for the team to take, along with basic toiletries, clothes and shoes—things that we take for granted but are in short supply there. The vast majority of the medicine given on these trips is an anti-parasitic to help with water-born disease. Each person seen at these clinics is given enough treatment for their whole household.
