El Salvador 2008: Day 6 - The Clinic

Over the past eight years Episcopal Relief and Development (ERD) has funded the construction of several new churches in rural areas in El Salvador. A typical project includes not only a church building but also an open air community center and a building with offices for the parish priest and a health clinic.

The Diocese maintains a staff of health professionals including a medical doctor that makes regular visits to each of these health clinics. The doctor provides both acute and preventive care to communities that would otherwise not have access to it.
