The areas served range from beautiful mountains under 9,000 feet to the cloud forests and eventually down to the rain forest. The local leader is a veterinarian and an environmentalist who not only works with us in arranging our sites but also shows us ways to better see the beautiful environment in which we will be providing the health care services.
