Mobile Medical and Dental Clinic

The city of Otavalo has given Charity Anywhere a mobile medical and dental motorhome to serve poor villages. The LDS Church has donated one opthamalogy chair and examination equipment for this medical unit. We have local doctors that will travel with this motorhome to use this new equipment. We always welcome other eye doctors to join our work.

CAF Display

We have had lots of opportunities to talk to people about Charity Anywhere Foundation but one of the exciting ways is to attend and display at the Dental Conventions and the college international fairs. We are able to show some of the pictures of expeditions and teach them about what the foundation does. A little over a week ago we were able to display at the Utah Dental Convention. It was so fun to meet people and see their desire to serve kindled by our display. God blessed us with 4 important connections. 1) A professor from the University of Utah said she wanted to meet together to design and program of international experience for her International Health students. She would develop the curriculum and we would handle the out of country expeditions. 2) A gentleman talked to Gordon about a sizable donation. 3) We received some offers of equipment that could really be used 4) We were informed about an international eye program that we might be able to work with that is supported by Sears Optical, Lenscrafter etc.

Dr. and Mrs. Zambrano were here as well as an orthodontist and a pediatrician from Ecuador. We worked hard on our display and I thought it looked pretty good.

Clinic in Otavalo Ecuador

We have been given a new clinic by the city of Otavalo in Ecuador but we need $40,000 to fund the clinic for a year. We need donations to pay for the rent, utilities, supplies, doctors and dentists. If we are unable to sustain the clinic, it will revert back to the government and we may miss out on a wonderful opportunity to serve the needy families in that area of Ecuador.

News From Ecuador

Dr. Zambrano has just announced that Charity Anywhere in Ecuador is partnering with the Navy. Dr. Zambrano has personal contacts with an Admiral and that is responsible for the Navy to have practice exercises. They want our medical and dental teams and volunteers to serve Galapagos. This means volunteers would board a Navy ship, go to one of the islands then fly by plane or helicopter or both to other islands. All of this would be under the Ecuadorian Navy flag. The two Galapagos trips on the calendar are with the Navy.

On December 26, 2009 I was on the border of Mexico trying to help a family with Grandma and Grandpa get through customs with their van full of materials for our projects.  The Mexican customs agent was a very nice guy but didn’t handle English real well.  I was with Grandpa on the back of the van with the van doors open and the customs agent was asking Grandpa what all the materials were for.  There was a big bag with girls clothes in it.  Grandpa said it was for his granddaughter that had already crossed the border.  The customs agent asked about a sack of beans.  They were a donation for the poor.  He asked about a bag of used shoes.  They were a donation.  The customs agent then told us that used clothing were not allowed to cross the border because it hurt there street shop businesses that deal with used clothing.  The customs agent then asked if there any other donations.  Grandpa said no.  Then there was a bag of rice that was questioned.  Another donation that Grandpa was unaware.  The customs agent started to be suspicious about the information that grandpa was giving him.

The customs agent then went up to the front and started to talk to Grandma.  She told him about each donation that was in the van.  He asked her what they were doing in Mexico.  She told him to help the poor and build a house.  She then proceeded to pull out an email letter that Charity Anywhere had sent her.  It listed all the items that would be helpful to the work.  He took the letter and she kept telling him about the donations and the building of a house.  He looked the letter over and immediately said,  I see by your letter that you are going to Do Good and Be Good.  That is all I need to know.  You may go on into Mexico.  His limited English understood what Do Good and Be Good was all about.

Who would have ever thought that our Motto would ever enable us to cross a border to do good.
