Jan. 25, 2023 (Florence) - A local surgical team is planning to travel to Guatemala in hopes to provide medical care to people in Guatemala, where they plan to perform and document upwards of 60 surgeries in the span of three days. “It is humbling to see the number of people who need care,” said operating room nurse Joe Brinkman. Medical clinics throughout the area identify surgery needs and set up appointments for the patients to meet with the surgical team. While the Florence team has been gathering supplies for the trip throughout the year, there are still donations to afford the trip by mid-February. Donations can be made out to Cross Road Assembly, and either dropped off or mailed to Cross Road Assembly Church at 1380 10th St., Florence, earmarked for the Guatemala trip.
The full-scale war of aggression launched by Russia in February 2022 has propelled CCL to the forefront of efforts to bring accountability for war crimes perpetrated in Ukraine. Since February 2022 the Tribunal for Putin Initiative, co-established by CCL, has documented over 21,000 episodes that constitute war crimes and crimes against humanity. This is why one of our goals is to explain the consequences of this war, how this war actually affects people even if they are far away from the battlefield. What this Russian war truly is – a genocidal, neocolonial war waged by Russia, which has been using terror of civilian population as its warfare. So the question we are asking is: how do we make sure justice is served to all victims of Russian war crimes?3 months ago The Paradise News
