Team from Tadley Community Church returns from Mexico

13th September 2016

 A small team from Tadley Community Church spent some time in Mexico in early September 2016Setting up an optician's clinic in a village near Oaxaca, where they helped running clinics for the indigenous poor in the area around Oaxaca City, in the south of the country. They were working alongside friends form a church in Florida, who run these clinics every year. 

Clinics were run over a five-day period, and the church members were kept busy running five clinics over a four-day period. The clinics included dentists, paediatricians, a cardiologist, a pharmacy, an optometrist and glasses dispensing. Approximately 280 pairs of glasses were prescribed and dispensed over the four days, using a large supply of secondhand glasses that have been donated. 

Members of Tadley Community Church regularly take part in these trips to Mexico, and Greg Whittick, Pastor of the church, commented, "This is a longstanding relationship which we value greatly: we always learn far more from these trips than we give, and they change the lives and outlook of those who participate in them as they demonstrate God's love to those around them."
