Last week, we held a health fair in the community Llano Grande. Students, parents and teachers from five rural schools participated, to learn about oral hygiene, the importance of handwashing, nutrition and biointensive gardening. We also teamed up with the Ministry of Health to offer medical attention and vaccinations.

Your support makes a lasting impact in the lives of children and their families. When we met Maudiel, his health problems were affecting his performance at school as well as the other activities in his life. Your support of our Community Health Program has transformed his life.

This #GivingTuesday give toward community health. https://www.rayodesol.org/

Rayo de Sol coordinates with the Ministry of Health to provide quality health services to children and their families, and to prevent common illnesses in the communities we serve. Our doctor holds community clinics each day, providing primary care and medications for more than 300 patients each month. We also organize public health workshops to tach students, teachers, and parents how to reduce health risks in schools and communities.
For those patients that require specialized attention, we coordinate with local specialists to provide dental, ophthalmologic and woman’s health services. Our doctor also does home visits to patients with chronic illnesses or special health needs. In this program, we also perform nutritional monitoring by gathering height and weight data for all school children, twice a year. Direct follow-up is provided for children who are suffering from malnutrition.
