Last week Carmen and I kicked off the 2015 Scholarship Program by visiting Chirijquiac and San Juan Ostuncalco, two of Pop Wuj's Scholarship communities.
We piggybacked on the medical program and shared transportation to their mobile clinic on Wednesday in Chirijquiac. Many of the scholarship families were also patients in the clinic.
