The Floating Doctors, an Optimist Club-sponsored nonprofit organization, boarded their boats and set sail to Bocas del Toro, Panama on July 31.
Founded by Palisadian Ben LaBrot, the organization is responsible for providing free acute and preventative health care services to people living in isolated areas.
This year, the Optimist Club of Pacific Palisades helped a recent Optimist Youth Home graduate named Victor Solorio achieve his goal to intern for the philanthropic organization.
Now one week into the program, LaBrot told the Palisadian-Post that Victor has been an “asset” to his team as they hike through remote mountain villages and fulfill their mission to provide fundamental health services for all who need them.
