Videos by Arianne Wenk

Thank you again to Arianne for her visit and service to the Clinica this past summer.  She did a great job of shooting video footage for the TCHF of Oregon Benefit Fund-An-Item video and even took the initiative to make a couple of very cute and touching videos of the many children that she met and interacted with during her visit.  Thank you from the TCHF of Oregon:

Students raise funds for TCHF

Hello, my name is Isaac Alles. I recently put on a fundraiser with a couple of my friends to raise money for the Tarahumara Children's Hospital. We made tissue paper flowers which we sold in order to raise funds. You wrote and asked me to send a photo of our project. Here are a couple of pictures of us selling the flowers at our school, and one picture of the poster we made. Two of the photos were taken with an old cellphone, so their quality is not the best. My two friends' names are Aimee Bataglia and Meaghan Young. 

Thank you!
Isaac

A Volunteer's Experience

Clinica Santa Teresita: a volunteer's experience by Cathy Scarbrough, RN, MSN Nothing in my 20 years of nursing could have prepared me for how sick and malnourished the Tarahumara children were that I cared for this past September when I volunteered for 2 weeks at Clinica Santa Teresita in Creel, Chihuahua, Mexico. When I worked at the 75 bed hospital in September the average number of pediatric in-patients was 28 per day with only 4-5 adult in-patients.
