Brasilia, Brazil -- A Solidarity Adventure

More than thirty university women from Brasilia took part in the Solidarity Adventure project, a work camp in Urucúia organized by the Lajedo Cultural Center during the vacation period.

From January 10 to 17, the students put into operation educational activities for over 100 children in the city. The students of medicine, dentistry, and nutrition, coordinated by a medical professional, examined children and adults to detect basic health problems, by carrying out a series of heart, lung, ear-nose-and-throat, and eye examinations. Mothers in the neighborhood received classes with practical ideas on how to improve nutritional health in their homes. Upon completing the project the volunteers provided health officials with a detailed analysis of the local situation.
