Hand Across

Posted by: Lisa Schroder & Nora Chian on Friday, October 12, 2018

Hand Across is a group dedicated to providing aid to the local medical community in Peru. In coordination with Matter, a Minnesotan non-profit organization, Hand Across seeks to send a full shipment of supplies to the hospital that has worked so closely with Scalpel At The Cross, as well as to other organizations that serve the Pucallpa community. Contacts on the ground will assess the current needs, and supplies will be chosen accordingly. Our mission is to bolster the Scalpel At The Cross mission while providing additional resources and aid to the local medical community, giving back to a community that hosts and supports the Scalpel mission. We also hope to re-purpose and improve access to medical resources for enhanced patient care beyond the orthopaedic procedures provided.
