Health and Happiness Project - Projeto Saúde e Alegria

Health and Happiness, originally uploaded by Tatiana Cardeal.

This is the name of this great project I went last december/2006, where doctors, dentists and educators go by boat, visiting many poor communitys along the Tapajós and Arapiuns Rivers. Places without social public services works, and where the Project is developing health, education and communication. Distances in Amazonia are large and the path are usually the rivers. Then, they built a hospital-boat to live and work.
