On our second day with Sacred Valley Health (SVH) we headed up and up (1200 ft!) and over to the beautiful town of Yanamayo. SVH's impact reaches extremely remote villages, like this one, where Spanish-speaking interpreters are needed to help communicate with the children who speak Quechua, the lingua franca of the Incas.
While SVH and the health and nursing students from SUNY Brockport were able to provide crucial health education and medical care, we also learned so much from the children as well, and were inspired by their kindness, bright smiles, and cold hands, greeting us one-by-one in the schoolyard, on that cold, sunny morning.
In order to help Sacred Valley Health continue their amazing work, travelling to remote communities to administer care and provide health education, consider contributing to their program and visit their website here.

Way to go team! What amazing work and such a fun time!
