As one group of 17+ volunteers continues providing care and delivering medicines around Tapaz in the Philippines, a second group of medical volunteers, lead by volunteer Dr. Joyce Johnson, HOPE’s volunteer Medical Director, is busy working on Camotes Island, another region badly impacted by Typhoon Haiyan.
Team two is working closely with the local Department of Health Immunization Outreach group, aggressively going out to remote population centers to immunize children against the measles, mumps, rubella virus and polio. The team also issued Vitamin A supplements to children in the disaster affected areas.
