Our first full day in Lima, started with breakfast at the Hotel Colon in the Mira Flores district. The team conducted break-out meetings led by Mission Director, Barbara Saffer and Head Nurse, Sharron Newton.
We traveled by bus to the Hospital Nacional Arzobispo Loayzo in central Lima. Medical Director, Dr. Alexander Espinoza Vargas welcomed our team to the sprawling medical campus. We toured the clinic’s day facilities, operating rooms and patient wards that will become our place of work over the next 10 days. The Rotary Club El Rimac invited us to a wonderful lunch event. Looking forward to Clinic Day tomorrow.
Here are a few pictures from our great start.
