FestivalDC Founder Visiting Bolivia Photographs and Observes Volunteer Medical Clinic for Elderly and Poor

FestivalDC.com Founder George Newcomb is currently in Bolivia where he is photographing much of the country’s Folklore including one of the most popular fiestas known to many worldwide, that of the Virgen Urkupiña (photos to follow in future story).

He was also invited to photograph and observe in the City of Cochabamba a make-shift medical clinic made up strictly of volunteers through a program by VOSERDEM, a Christian based organization aimed at help many of the city’s poor and elderly. One of Northern Virginia’s traditional Bolivian folkloric dance groups, Sambos Caporales, headed by Juan Carlos Cadima, helped sponsor the clinic.
