This trip to Costa Rica will be Change for Children’s first dental and optometry brigade trip to this area. Clinics will be held in barrios surrounding the capital City including a neighbourhood called La Carpio, which is where thousands of refugees from the Nicaraguan civil war of the 1980’s and 90’s have settled and have been largely ignored by the governments of San José and Costa Rica. We are also endeavouring to do a clinic day for the Nicaraguan refugees displaced to Costa Rica during this current period of civil unrest.
Included: Accommodation, ground transportation, breakfast and lunch on clinic days.
