Global Brigades is working on the implementation of the Holistic Model in Las Marias but has not yet begun with the Medical Brigades program. Now in the planning phase, mobile clinics and Community Health Workers training will start as soon as feasible.
Las Marias is located in biodiverse Panama, and celebrated its transition with Global Brigades in March of 2021. Community members have access to credit through an established and thriving community bank which will support continued investment in local businesses and home improvement projects for families within the community. People in Las Marias are primarily dedicated to agriculture, coffee growing, and cattle raising. The wait-list for eventual Holistic Model implementation as part of Global Brigades’ strategic plan in Panama.
