El Salvador 2013: Day One is Done

Wow, what a day we had yesterday!  We visited El Congo, a community that has never had an NGO visit to help them. There were speeches by the mayor and they sang our national anthem!  The drive was gorgeous, winding along mountain top road, with a valley on one side and a stunning lake on the other. 
We saw 805 people in medical, 181 in dental and handed out 171 pairs of reading glasses. 
It was a great day with so many people needing our medical attention. I got to meet a 104-year-old man, whose only issue was eye pain. He was so sweet. 
It is so rewarding to know that these people finally know that there are other people out there who care about them. 
Here are a few photos I took at the end of the day.
