During a recent outreach clinic at Candelaria Elementary outside of Tapaz, the Philippines, Project HOPE volunteers saw a record 626 patients. These visitors were as young as a few days old - all the way up to their mid-90's. Though it was the busiest of the four outreaches that Rotation Three has been a part of, everyone was happy and energized with a successful day.
