Dr. R. Daniel Jacob (Board Chairman, President, and a founder of New Orleans Medical Missions Services – NOMMS) completed a medical mission to Matagalpa Nicaragua on Saturday March 12, 2016. Accompanying him was his son, Dr. Christian D. Jacob, a facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon. The five surgeons on the mission, of various specialties, successfully performed 90 surgeries. The volunteers in the eye clinic dispensed glasses to 1600 patients. All attest that it is in giving that we receive.
