IHS has been doing Medical/Dental/Surgical/Eyecare missions to Honduras for 20 years. This year a group of 115 from all over the US plus
13 Honduran translators, dentists, nurses fanned out to 15 sites all over Honduras.   David & Alice worked with Dr Jim and Margie Haaga,
from Burnsville, and others in the village of Uhi, on the Carribean Sea coast.  Sites are so remote that ham radio is the only communications
available. Surgery support was available 20 miles away by plane. We treated over 1000 medical and dental patients, referred for surgery:
 2 hernia repairs, 4 tubal ligations, two broken bones.
