American and European Doctors Serve in El Salvador
EL SALVADOR | APOSTOLATE | NEWS
Helping Hands Medical Missions Gives Free Medical Care to the Poor

El Salvador. November 24, 2007. A group of American and European doctors and nurses recently travelled to El Salvador to offer free consultations and surgical operations in La Divina Providencia (Divine Providence) Hospital in Santiago Texacuangos and in the Convent of San Pedro Nonualco.

The doctors and nurses are part of a Regnum Christi missionary apostolate called Helping Hands Medical Missions, which gives medical experts a chance to share their gifts free of charge with the poor. Clips from their latest mission were featured on El Salvador’s most important newspaper and news website.

The clip shows a medical mission in action, with surgeries and consultations captured on film. An interview with a medical missionary named Dr. Peter Danny gives some insight into these doctors’ motivations. In Spanish, Dr. Danny says that these doctors go on medical missions with a sense that God is sending them to share their gifts with others, including their faith, their family, and the love of God.
