We are fortunate to have some volunteer students translating for us. Several days this week we have had two students from St. Edward’s University in Austin, Texas. They are on a three week service trip to Peru. These wonderful young women interact well with the families and children that come to our clinic. One of the women, Jordan, had some extra nail polish, and when I suggested that the young girls waiting for their wheelchairs to be finished might appreciate getting their nails painted, Jordan lit up.
One beneficiary of their efforts was Stefany, a nine year old girl with significant needs and an engaging smile.
