Dentist, Doctor, Physiotherapist for Professional Consultation Office
Min. 2 weeks.
The project is located in Villas de Ayarco, which is an outlying community of Tres Rios, Cartago, Costa Rica, which is only about 25 minutes from the capital San José. This project, designed to reach out to the hurt and lost, was initiated by a few local Costa Rican people and very little money. It has since grown into a major effort as more people have joined to complete the task at hand.
In 1998-99, money to purchase approximately 2.4 acres of land was raised locally in Costa Rica with none of the money coming from stateside sources. Construction on Phase I of the Abraham Project was initiated in February 2002. A crew of local people was hired to begin the construction work. The tedious work of digging footers and pouring foundations was under way. Since that time, they have been able to complete Children’s Homes, Daycare, Life-Skills Workshops and Professional Consultation Offices, where they have legal and medical offices where professionals (i.e. lawyers, therapists, psychologists etc.) can donate their time (a few hours, half a day, or even an entire day) to people in the surrounding communities. Many of the people that live in these areas are considered low-income families, so services are provided free of charge or at a very minimal cost to the individual.
