The nonprofit CEPIA celebrated its fifth anniversary of helping kids in need with a new health network. The group secured the donated services of Dr. Walbin Sánchez, a gynecologist from the San Rafael Arcángel private clinic in Liberia. Already helping with the kids is Tamarindo dentist Tatiana Ortiz, Optical Vision in Tamarindo and the doctors from Emergency 2000.
