Las Manos de Cristo Clinic

Why does FPC Boone support Las Manos de Cristo Clinic in Chiapas?
Take a look at the messages below…

The indigenous Mayan people of Chiapas are often treated as second-class citizens, even by government agencies. Many of the people do not speak Spanish. Therefore, they are often fearful and reluctant to seek medical care from government operated clinics. The terrain of Chiapas is mountainous and the people are impoverished making travel difficult and unaffordable for many living in the villages. As a result, they often receive poor and inconsistent medical services or wait until their condition is so grave that little or nothing can be done to help them.

FPC partnered with Hebron USA to build and staff a clinic that functions year round to bring quality medical care to the people of Chiapas in an atmosphere of trust and Christian compassion. In addition, medical teams from the US travel there several times a year to serve side by side with the clinic physician and nurse.
