At the McLean Woman’s Club meeting on April 5th, member Linda Wheeler described her continuing work bringing medical aid to infants and children in remote parts of Guatemala. She and her husband have often traveled by plane, train, boat and on foot to these impoverished areas, with the in-country trips lasting up to six hours each way over rough and rocky terrain. At the meeting, a collection was taken to help fund the $1,800 needed for Linda’s next trip, in November, and members had brought contributions of clothing, toys and over-the- counter medical supplies.
