GeoPark worked alongside the medical brigade of the Colombian Civil Air Patrol (PAC) to provide free access to surgery and outpatient services in the towns of Tauramena and Villanueva in Casanare department in August.

A team of 49 volunteers and 9 members of the Air Patrol team took part in the health drive, providing almost 2,000 people with comprehensive and quality care in outpatient services such as dermatology, gynecology, optometry, pediatrics and ultrasound, surgical services in gynecology, ophthalmology, general surgery and family planning services.

Services provided in the health drive included 1,147 specialized medical consultations, as well as 85 surgical and 435 non- surgical procedures, and 333 interventions to support surgery.

“We continue to promote initiatives that promote the well-being of our neighboring communities and contribute to closing social gaps,” GeoPark Neighbor Relations manager Diego Morales said. “We sincerely thank those who participated in the conference, as well as to Tauramena and Villanueva Mayor’s Offices and hospitals for coordinating with the brigade, and to the Colombian Civil Air Patrol for their professionalism and for being our partners in helping promote the health of our neighbors.”

“Working together with our partners allows us to bring the hospital to the people who need it most to provide access to high-quality health services,” Colombian Civil Air Patrol director general Pamela Estrada said. “We are very happy to have returned to Casanare within the framework of this partnership and to have offered medical, surgical and diagnostic services to the most vulnerable people in these municipalities. Thank you to our partners and volunteers for joining forces to positively impact the quality of life of hundreds of people.”

Carrying out social investment projects in Casanare has been possible due to GeoPark’s progress in oil production activities in Tauramena and Villanueva. Developing more production activities will allow GeoPark to continue to implement initiatives that, like the health drive, promote well-being in neighboring communities.
