Mission Trip to the Copper Canyon

American Prairie Homes’ owner John Hilla will be joining his wife, Dr. Kathleen Garry, on a LIGA International dental mission trip to the Copper Canyon of Sinaloa, Mexico.

LIGA International (The Flying Doctors of Mercy) is a non-profit organization that provides free health care and education to the people of Sinaloa, Mexico since 1934.

The goal of this 12-day mission trip is to make a long-term difference in the oral health of the people who live in and around the Copper Canyon. They will not only provide free dental work in isolated pueblos inhabited by Tarahumara Indians, but also encourage the local Tarahumara students to consider a career in dentistry.

We wish John and Kate safe travels and personal enlightenment throughout their stay in the Copper Canyon.
