Pharmacy Project in Chan Chen

Plans to open a Pharmacy in Chan Chen

Yesterday I went out to the Mayan village of Chanchen and met with the leaders of this small town. They said that one of their greatest problems was the lack of access to medicine. Rodolfo, the mayor, said most could pay for the medicine but the trip into town is the difficulty. The closest pharmacy is 30 miles away and these people do not have cars. It’s hard for us to think about but if you had a fever and or a headache could you imagine riding a bike 60 miles. They have the building for the pharmacy and we think we can help them buy basic medicine to get started. Please pray for this Pharmacy Project.
