Sierra Children’s Health Project

Spend two weeks in the Sierra Madre checking and documenting the health of the local children. Some Spanish required. More important are self-reliance and patience.

The Sierra Children's Health Project is the brainchild of a Mexican doctor, Dr. Hector Lechuga. Dr. Lechuga is collecting data to show how poor diet among the children in the sierra leads to ill health and epidemics. Groups of up to five volunteers at a time are sought to accompany the doctor into the sierra to do basic health testing. Instruction will be given, and housing provided. For more details, check, or contact me, Jim Glendinning.
