More than a dozen Syracuse-area parishioners are spending this week in Nicaragua to help combat maternal mortality and support infant health. Since the early 1990's, parishioners have been providing money and supplies to the Health Care Ministry in the in the Villanueva community. Charles Clinton, one of the group’s leaders, notes how important the trip is to the community.
"You would see on the walls of the program center photographs of people from previous trips," Clinton said. "They're in their memories, and definitely in their spirits."
