There are thousands of working poor that live in cardboard or scrap lumber houses in the surrounding shantytowns, as one pueblo merges into another. While working with a congressman from the US, we were able to make the necessary connections to get them land titles, electricity and finally water and sewage. This has improved the health situation dramatically.
While attending a men’s Bible study with business people and physicians, David and a doctor committed to reaching out to the thousands of poor who live in Lima. The doctor committed to going three mornings a week to attend patients in an abandoned bus in Flores de Villa. Gina began a Bible study with 6 women who had never read the Bible before. David with his Masters in Public Health began training Health Promoters who could teach hygiene, nutrition; in short educate and reach out to the community.
