Physicians for Peace receives donation

At a recent open house at the Physicians for Peace headquarters, the Bank of America Charitable Foundation made a generous donation for an upcoming mission to India that will focus on maternal and child health. Visitors were treated to a presentation on a recent mission to the Philippines, which, as part of the Walking Free program, focused on the education and training of medical professionals involved in the treatment of amputees.

Two local volunteers, Michael Smith, a certified prosthetist orthotist, and Kelly Andrews, an art therapist, shared with the group their recent trip to the Philippines.
