    The COVID Impact - Dra. Grace Lim
    Every day we’re hearing about the devastating effects the coronavirus pandemic is having on our San Miguel de Allende community. Few people are seeing it from the front lines like this week’s guest speaker, Dra. Grace Lim. First, as a medical doctor, she is very well aware of the danger and realities of COVID 19. And, as the head of SOME (So Others May Eat) Dra. Grace is dealing with another crisis – hunger.

    When the shut down orders came this past March, hundreds of local people, mostly elderly, no longer had access to the once a week free meal provided by SOME . For many, it was the only nutritional meal they would get each week. Dra. Grace will share her story of how COVID impacts these people and how SOME is dealing with it. She will also discuss the coronavirus crisis in San Miguel and what each of us needs to be doing to safely reopen our community.

    About our speaker: Grace Joanne Lim Baga was born in Toronto, Canada but grew up in San Miguel de Allende where, starting at the age of 5, she worked side by side with her mother Antonette, who founded SOME in 1989. Shortly before her beloved mother, Antonette, died in 2016 Grace asked if there was anything she needed. Antonette told her to keep the SOME program going. It was a mother’s dying wish and a promise that Dra. Lim intends to keep. She and her father continued the feeding program, but on September 24, 2018, her father, Joe Lim unexpectedly died. Now, with both parents gone, the responsibility of keeping SOME rests squarely on Dra. Lim’s shoulders.

    A thirty-something human dynamo, Dra. Lim has a lot to juggle. Not only does she continue to practice medicine in San Miguel de Allende with her husband, but she now runs the Spa and Hotel, is a mom, and CEO of SOME In 2019, she was chosen as Rotary’s Citizen of the Year. .

    Join us Tuesday, June 30th at 9:30AM for this most informative and riveting presentation via Zoom video conference.
