Global Brigades is working on the implementation of the Holistic Model in Perecabe but has not yet begun with the Medical Brigades program. Now in the planning phase, mobile clinics will start as soon as feasible.
Perecabe is located in the Province of Penonome and Global Brigades began working with community members in October 2020. 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 Perecabe are primarily dedicated to agriculture, animal raising, and trading and when Global Brigades visited the community, their members expressed that the top three needs were: improving the road condition, improving the water system, and medical aid. Global Brigades is currently working with Business brigades in Perecabe and the community is on the wait list for eventual Holistic Model implementation as part of Global Brigades’ strategic plan in Panama.
