September 2008 Surgery Team

On August 30, 2008, the 11th surgery team arrived at the Mission of Hope hospital in Santa Cruz, Bolivia for a week of free surgeries. The team was led by Dr. Elmer Kennel, a general surgeon from Rockingham Memorial Hospital in Harrisonburg, Va. He was joined by team members from Georgia, North Carolina, Oregon, New York, Florida and Virginia, who all came together to serve the poor in Bolivia. It was a week of great blessings for the 66 patients who were selected for surgery.
