What's Next?

The Upala Project, Walton’s participation in helping to establish a disability center in Upala, Costa Rica continues to make great strides. During our April, 2010 visit we found that they are having some 50 to 70 people a day at the center receiving therapy. We were also told that the Government of Costa Rica now wants to utilize the center as a training facility for Special Olympics. WOW! From a small house three years ago to now two modern buildings up and running. What’s next? It is entirely possible that in the year 2011 we will be looking at some type of Staff Exchange Program. The details of this are still in the infant stage but has great promise. The April trip was also full of FLAME continuing medical clinics for indigenous areas of the country, completing the church on the Melaku Reservation.
