3CM and APROCOLA launched the medical aspect of our operations in Honduras in March of 2001. At that time, Dr. Brian Brodie accompanied Tim and phil Davidson to Santa Rosa de Copan to investigate the opportunities for medical staff to get involved with our ventures here. Brian hosted a marathon clinic at a small rural community called La Majara which only ended when the natural sunlight did. Then, in July, 2002, Dr. Bill Hanlon came down to establish the initial contacts with the appropriate authorities and help Phil to create a schedule for a team that was to follow shortly thereafter. He also hosted our second one-man clinic at La Majara.
It was through the efforts of the medical groups that came to participate with us that we developed a focus on water. It was a natural progression for us once we recognized that our brief clinical appearances had more impact on us than on the local population and that the local population would not truly have a lasting change in health until the basic causes of their medical problems were attacked.
