The Yucatan Project

The Yucatan Crippled Children's Project began as an outgrowth of humanitarian relief to the Yucatan in 1988 after Hurricane Gilbert ripped through the region. Gilbert, a category 5 storm, left 500 people dead and widespread destruction. Relief aid to the region came from throughout the Western Hemisphere.

Dr. Charles C. Southerland, working with other health care professionals and public officials in Mexico hoped to bring medical care to the crippled children in the Yucatan as an ongoing project.
