Christian Church

Home Health Kits for Nicaragua Mission Trip

Each year Country Club Christian Church sends a Medical Mission Team to Nicaragua to help provide basic care in some of the most remote villages.

During the mission teams time in the village they give out home health kits to all villagers that come for treatment or to attend a health seminar. Each kit contains vitamins (adult and childrens), toothpaste, toothbrushes, ibuprofen, childrens tylenol, band aides and soap.
What a huge difference it makes to be able to brush your teeth or give your child pain medication when they are teething or have a fever.
