Day 5: La Sabana Clinic continues
“The Ngobe are a simple people. Full of warmth, tenacity, and creativity, their days are spent in a manner that those of us who don’t call our selves Ngobe, can only dream of.
No deadlines, no work week, no rat race.
The examples that they live can only inspire us all to live a more heart-filled, conscience life.
This reason alone is why they deserve better. Not more, better.
Better access to preventative healthcare and a steady supply of clean water will allow communities like these to lift up from their struggles and show the rest of the busy world how to simplify their lives.
Thanks to Floating Doctors and Waves for Water that dream is turning onto a reality. On a recent trip Floating Doctors was able to provide care to over 167 patients. In between visits there was a Waves for Water demonstration which taught community elders and children, together, how to build, use and maintain their own water filtration system.
The question from the doctors; “how many glasses of water do you drink each day,” can now raise from 0-1, to 3-5. Thats a beautiful thing.
Simple preventive care will allow these people to continue living how we should all be living; Observed, Heart-filled, and Healthy. ”
