Hand of Hope Volunteers

Panama | September 8-15, 2018

We are excited about taking a medical/dental team to Panama September 8-15, 2018. We are working with our long-time friend and ministry partner, Dan Salas Ministries based in Panama. Dan Salas Ministries serves people throughout Central America, providing help and hope through water relief, feeding initiatives, community outreach, Bible schools and vocational training. They host medical teams throughout the year and have a passion to help the people they serve.



We will set up a general medical/dental clinic and treat the patients’ needs as they present. We will also pray with every patient and give them an opportunity to receive Christ.  The team will be staying in a hotel based in Panama. This will be our 4th outreach to assist the great people of Panama.
