Trip By: Christ For the City International
Location: Costa Rica, Central America
When: Customizable: Jan-Dec 2019
Provide much needed dental care and instruction to the marginalized poor in the community of La Carpio, Costa Rica!
The Christ For the City International staff in Costa Rica have recognized a need among the low income people of their country for adequate and affordable dental care. While some individuals have insurance and access to good healthcare, those on the fringes of society are often left without healthcare, because they cannot pay and have no insurance available to them.
A few years ago, Christ For the City began working to meet the needs of those without health and dental care through a new medical clinic in a needy area of San Jose. The clinic focuses on giving affordable, Christian-based healthcare to families in need. The clinic is always in need of dental professionals to come work alongside our clinic’s dentist and medical staff in offering love and care to patients. If you are a dental hygienist, giving a month or two of your life can help expand the ministry capacity of the clinic and reach more people in need.
