1997 PAGES Medical Mission

1997 PAGES Medical Mission, originally uploaded by john m flores.

I've stumbled upon an old box of photos from 1997. That year I was a member of the PAGES NGO medical mission as they traveled to Bauan Batangas. For the last 20 years a team of physicians and nurses travels from the US to the Philippines, sets up shop (usually) in a small country hospital, and performs free cleft lip and palate surgery for those who can't afford medical care. The work they do is both inspiring and humbling.

More to come as I continue to scan...
