All the health institutions in the city participated in the futsal championships. Futsal is the FIFA-recognised form of small-sided indoor football (the word is a contraction of the Spanish ‘fútbol sala’). It is played between two teams who each have five players on the pitch at any one time, with rolling substitutes and a smaller ball than soccer that is harder and less bouncy. We are pleased to say FT obtained third place in the competition. We thank God for the beautiful time that was had with the health personnel of the other institutions.
On May 20, the new board of FT directors 2023-2025 was sworn in. Positions: Dr. Miguel Arauz – President, Dr. Pitias Suarez – Vice President, Prof. Porfidia Prado – Treasurer, Ms. Elizabeth Vaca – Recording Secretary and Prof. Iracema Barboza – Member. We wish everyone successes and blessings in all that they do for FT and beyond.
Thanks to Prof. Carla Camader and Claudia Arauz, who created a very productive afternoon when we taught the community girls how to make delicious cheese empanadas. The girls were very happy to learn and taste these rich and delicious products.
Thanks to Lic. Andrea Callisaya, Speech Therapist, we were able to give information talks to the teachers of the educational unit “La Palmera” in our city. She talked about speech problems in children and adolescents of the unit. The teachers were very grateful for the information and training.
The mothers of our community prepared their handicraft items for display and sale at the fair held in the main square of our city. This enabled them to have some resources to take to their families. We are very happy to be able to contribute to the development of their creativity and skills and for them to generate some financial resources.
Celebrating Bolivian Children’s Day, we entertained our community children with a fun afternoon of games and also a delicious snack. We thank God for allowing us to meet and fill the lives of all the children who attend our institution with joy.
We support the students of the Nueva Trinidad Educational Unit, with our virtual classroom to search for information and prepare exhibition topics. The students were very grateful for this important support for them.
In commemoration of Bolivian Father’s Day March 19, our children developed their creativity by making beautiful works to give their parents on their day. We appreciate the work of Professor Carla Camader for the initiative carried out.
Thanks to Lic. Andrea Callisaya – Phonoaudiologist, we offered a socialisation workshop on risk sign detection instruments in school education for teachers in the regular classroom of the School for the Deaf in our city.

With great enthusiasm we started our craft classes for our girls in the community, they are making products to be able to sell them to society, generating economic resources to help their families.
Sign language classes for our children began. The aims include breaking down communication barriers and to enable them to participate in society in a more inclusive way.

At this time of the year our region suffered the inclemencies of the rains; As a result of this, we have suffered the flooding of our facilities that harmed us in the normal care of our patients and some equipment suffered failures.
The joy of our athletes was not long in coming when they started training at the soccer school. We are participating in the municipal championship in the categories 6, 8 and 10 years.
Our 2023 management and community activities began with great enthusiasm, with our school support classes and bible lessons. This year we will place greater emphasis on our children learning to handle technological devices and information.
