The Ohio Nuns on a Bus made their stop in Lima this afternoon to gain support for a faithful budget.
The Health Partners of West Ohio service about 17,000 people in their three health centers. And many of their patients don't know what they would do without it.
Dewey Thomas Mullett, a patient at the center believes he would have been dead a long time ago if it wasn't for them.
The doctors truly care for their patents and want them to all stay healthy despite their financial obstacles.
Juanita Fox, another patient says that her doctor cared more about her health than if she could pay them back and that they absolutely care about everyone there.
A group called "Nuns on a Bus" rolled up to tour the facility and see the services offered first hand. They don't want to see social service agencies like this one lose money that would be used to help people who need it. They are calling for democrats and republicans to support a faithful budget.
Sister Carren Herring is promoting a faithful budget so that citizens vote their values because she says every person deserves food, clothing, and shelter.
The center already operates on a tight budget and if they experienced a cut, they would lose 200,000 dollars. More people would then end up using emergency rooms because they don't have preventative care.
Janis Sunderhaus, CEO of Health Partners of Western Ohio, says that it end up costing the taxpayers more money when sick people use more expensive care.
The nuns hope their tour will bring attention to the issue because politicians work for the people and have to know who they represent.
