Manos Juntas Medical Clinic

For the past 15 years, the West Ohio Conference has been sending VIM teams to a clinic at a non-denominational church in Nuevo Progreso, Mexico. During that same time, a Methodist Church in the neighboring colonia was growing to the point that it could support a medical clinic within its own complex. In January 2011, it was decided that West Ohio and Manos Juntas would join in full partnership, working together hand-in-hand, to provide medical care for the local community. A new clinic building was reconstructed in Iglesia El Buen Pastor in Colonia Francisco Madera, Nuevo Progreso. Now, the people of the colonia will have regular access to quality healthcare. “Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their labor: If either of them falls down, one can help the other up. But pity anyone who falls and has no one to help them up” (Ecclesiastes 4:9-10).
