SALISBURY, Md. - A group of seniors are breaking with tradition for a good cause at Salisbury Christian School.
Salisbury Christian's Class of 2017 didn't give the school a gift, which tends to be a class tradition. Instead they raised money for a prenatal ultrasound, that will be donated to an area in Peru.
Seniors did ministry work in Jose Galvez this May and saw the need to go the extra mile.
La Roca Campus has a school, a church, a dental care and even a prenatal clinic. And the students wanted to give them something that would leave an impact. This student-led effort was able to raise $16,000 for an ultrasound.
The trip coordinator, Chris Condos says, "They have the same quality ultrasound that they have in Lima at this place of seemingly nowhere in the desert of southern Peru. With that, they hope to help the community everything is free of charge. Everything is free of charge they don't charge them to use the clinic."
The ultrasound doesn't just have to be used for prenatal care. It can also be used to diagnose a wide variety of conditions affecting the organs and soft tissues of the body.
We're told Salisbury Christian hopes to head back to Peru with another group of students so they can see how the device being used.
