The purpose of the trip was to train health care providers and other local citizens in basic life support skills, and to contribute at the Pueblito de Costa Rica Orphanage.

It all started with a mother who encouraged her son to help others.
From there the inspiration grew, not only to a life of giving but to passing that idea on to future generations.
John Disque of Brownstown took the lessons he learned from his mother as one of 11 children and passed that gift of giving to his four children.
