Joseph DiSalvo of Derry completed a weeklong service trip to Guatemala as part of Saint Joseph’s College of Maine’s International Service Trips, in conjunction with Partners in Development (PID) of Ipswich, Mass. In Guatemala, four faculty and staff members and a 24-member student team volunteered in the village of Desierto and at a local health clinic a few miles from the village. Nursing students helped to staff the medical clinic — running the lab, doing triage, assessing and caring for patients, screening children for various afflictions, and providing health education to adults in the clinic and children at the local school. Other students helped to build a new home for a family. The group also ran a children’s program and distributed humanitarian supplies and medicine. Saint Joseph’s College has sent volunteer teams to Guatemala for the past 10 years. DiSalvo is an exericse science student at the college.
