Over the course of 10 days, the Continuing Promise (CP-15) team embarked aboard the Military Sealift Command hospital ship USNS Comfort (T-AH 20) provided care to over 9,300 Colombian patients from July 8-17, completing the seventh mission stop for CP-15 in Buenaventura, Colombia.
The CP-15 team continued building partnerships within the region, working alongside Colombian military members, government officials, healthcare professionals and community leaders.
Comfort will transit through the Panama Canal before reaching its next CP-15 mission stop in Dominica. Since deploying in April, the ship has completed mission stops in Belize, Guatemala, Jamaica, Nicaragua, Panama, El Salvador and Colombia. Additional stops are planned for Dominican Republic, Haiti and Honduras.
