Artists and Crossroads Team to Improve Healthcare
Proceeds from all sales at the Crossroads Art Gallery support our capacity building program for health promoters in the borderlands (The Crossroads Border Project).
We asked Ricardo why he wanted to support this project and here’s what he said:
“Projects that are dedicated to the service of those that are less fortunate hold a special place among humankind. I wish there were more projects like this, but in the meantime someone like the team at Crossroads Acupuncture share with us work that is not only arduous, but completely satisfying.
They bring hope of healing to those who find it difficult to access the current healthcare system because of their circumstances. I am extremely grateful to have the opportunity to participate with my grain of sand in this beautiful project!”
