Recently, our local physician, Dr. Andrea Messeguer, who owns and operates the Playa Grande Clinic along with Dr. Anwar (her partner and local dentist) were burglarized and suffered significant losses, to the point that they were forced to suspend services.

Our communities cannot do without medical and dental services, and so we are asking for financial donations to help Dr. Andrea and Dr. Anwar to return to work, even if they must operate out of a temporary location. Donations are being accepted at Cafe Mocha, located at Paseo Del Mar commercial center. For more information, contact Randy Toltz at rantol@me.com
