Prodeco Group and the Colombian Air Patrol conducted a free health brigade in Becerril
On May 19 and 20, the population of the Cesar mining corridor received once again a pleasant visit: 53 members of the Colombian Air Patrol landed in Becerril to provide medical services free of charge to more than 700 people from the rural and urban area who are not affiliated to the contributory healthcare system.
The health brigade in Becerril was made possible by the alliance between Social Prosperity, the National Mining Agency, the Colombian Air Patrol, the Becerril Mayor’s Office and the Prodeco Group, where these actors joined efforts to bring to vulnerable communities specialized medical services in pediatrics, optometry, ophthalmology, ultrasound and dermatology; as well as the execution of over 100 surgeries in gynecology, colposcopy, ophthalmology and general surgery.
Prodeco Group employees volunteered for this initiative to assist in the logistics and fulfillment of the event, as did the municipal mayor’s office of Becerril, which made all the arrangements so that the hospital in the municipality could meet the needs of the health brigade.
For the third time, the Colombian Air Patrol arrives at the mining corridor of Cesar, and every time the Prodeco Group has invited the local government and other national government agencies to make the most of this opportunity through organized management and have a positive impact on the largest number of people from vulnerable communities in municipalities such as La Jagua de Ibirico, El Paso and Becerril.
