At almost the halfway in our journey to clinic restoration in the small, beach town of Samara, everyone is extremely excited to see the finished product. In the last month, we have helped a community center reopen for public use by cleaning and organizing, worked more with the children, and even help with a community fundraiser, called Combate.
One of the most rewarding parts of our work has been the reaction from the community. The clinic is the closet place for community members to receive health care, and is frequented by people looking for treatment as well as those looking for a short cut to the beach. Community members have expressed their gratitude and taken a genuine interest in the restoration. Their sentiment has helped keep our moral high and us working hard. Our hope is that, in understanding their needs, we can leave the community better than we found it.
After sanding, scraping, and cleaning, we are ready to paint!
Crafts with local children!
Some of us took a break from clinic restoration to help Association Crear with its community fundraiser.
After a day of work, we stopped by a movie set to help some Columbia Univ. film school students!
