John Jones leads first SJRR mission of 2017 bringing eye care to more than 1,000 residents

John Jones and a team of 13 volunteers traveled from Santa Rosa, California to lead San Juan Rio Relief’s first medical aid trip of 2017. Jones coordinated the annual mission with SJRR’s Rafael Praslin. The eye care team, which also included a Managua-based doctor, a Peace Corp worker and other volunteers based in the area, examined over 1,000 people in the communities of Las Maravillas and Buena Vista. All of the services provided were free and the team distributed hundreds of prescription eyeglasses and sunglasses. The mission was conducted January 3-5, 2017.
