See how a father and son brought life-changing medical care to low-income families.
Watch scenes from Ricardo’s life-changing trip back to Mexico, then scroll down to see how Delta made it possible.
Ricardo comes from a long line of healers.
His grandfather was a shaman, someone who exercises healing practices without a medical degree, in Portuguesa, Venezuela. His father, Al, is a physician and works in his hometown in Venezuela, devoting his life to his patients and their families.
He had another surprise waiting for him in Mexico.
Ricardo traveled to the Cristo Rey community in Solidaridad, Mexico.
At first, Delta told Ricardo his father would not be able to join him on this adventure, but it was all an elaborate ruse to surprise him!
Once father and son reunited, they were joined by a local physician and medical student from Mexico. This small but mighty team traveled in a mobile home throughout the city’s lower-income neighborhoods to distribute care. They visited nearly 200 people in need over the course of a week.
