San Jose de la Mula
This past week was spent hiking throughout the quiet and beautiful community of San Jose de la Mula in the rural mountains of Nicaragua. During the trip, a group of 20 global health volunteers carried out water filter maintenance, "charlas" on Zika prevention, and health stations for children under five. Although we parceled out a lot of health information and worked on furthering community empowerment, I feel that I learned so much more from the humble, patient, and strong people of San Jose.
