On July 4th, 2002, Mission of Hope opened a free medical clinic in Santa Cruz, Bolivia.  Pictured here, Mission of Hope staff take a day to celebrate 15 years of God's faithfulness!  Dr. Yamina Eid and Dr. Luis Tapia (centered behind the cake) were part of the original staff when the clinic opened 15 years ago! 


 
To date, more than 300,000 patients have received free care, including free medical exams, free laboratory tests, free medicines, and free surgeries!  A big "Thank You!" to all of you, our supporters, for partnering with us to serve the poor in Bolivia!
 
We also took time to celebrate 15 years here in the U.S...
Pastor Pete Bullette, president of Chi Alpha at the University of Virginia and chairman of our Board of Directors, was our "Master of Ceremonies" and entertained us with a game of "Mission of Hope Jeopardy!" 
 
Our guest speaker was Dr. Charlie Gross, a retired ENT surgeon.  Dr. Gross brought the first ENT surgery team to Mission of Hope in the spring of 2005.  He shared stories of some of the patients he took care of during his 8 years of taking teams to Bolivia!
 
The program was followed by a big Mission of Hope "family" reunion, attended by many friends and supporters and former team members, who came from as far away as upstate New York!  It was a wonderful time of fellowship!
