May 17, 2013

More than 450 Yucatecans children with strabismus problems, cleft palate, burns sequels and other sufferings will have the opportunity to have surgical procedures by medical experts from the Mercy Hospital of Iowa from the 20th to 26th of October.

The coordinator of the Mercy Foundation project, David González Domínguez, explained that the program hopes to benefit children living in vulnerable areas, so the coordination with the DIF has been reinforced.

“The Mercy Foundation has been working for more than 20 years in Mexico, it has performed more than 9,500 surgeries, each of them with an estimate cost of 15 to 60 thousand pesos. The O’horan Hospital will be hosting the program, which we are sure it will be a success.”
