I have worked throughout the developing world, and felt drawn to Clinica Verde by the culture it has developed though honoring the essential humanity in each of us. The culture is one that welcomes all, and cares not only for people's physical health but also for that of their Spirit, offering hope that things can be better.
It specializes in caring for women and children in one of the poorest regions in one of the poorest countries in the Western Hemisphere, and I feel especially proud of the way it helps empower women to plan their families in a way that can help lift them out of poverty.
The clinic also helps provide families with eco-stoves that help prevent deforestation while improving families' physical and financial health. Community partnerships include a bio-intensive garden which raises consciousness as well as health. There's just so much to love!

I have worked in Africa, Central America and I am a former Minister of Health in Nicaragua and one of the most exiting and compelling characteristics of Clinica Verde is the determination of the staff to provide quality and humane health care to women, children, families with almost no resources. The gardener, the cleaning staff, the pharmacist, the clinical director, nurses and doctors are all convinced that health care is to show they care for people as a key element to provide health services. The director and the staff are always looking for ways to constantly reach out, they organize health fairs, participate in the vaccination campaigns, are trying to include new services, organize patients to have the opportunity to benefit from medical brigades. Key messages for prevention, good diagnosis and treatment are what the staff is aiming for. I thank all of the board members and everybody that has made possible that Clinica Verde continues to bring hope and health to Nicaraguans.

Many years ago I fell ill in the Gobi desert and was taken in by the local women who nursed me back to health. Through this experience I had the opportunity of experiencing unconditional love and giving. In 2012 I had the opportunity to visit Clinica Verde and see first hand their unconditional love and giving. When you arrive at Clinica Verde your first impression is of substance and structure and as soon as you walk into the building you will see professionalism, care, quality and hope. Clinica Verde is not a room that wants to make people feel better, Clinica Verde is a community structure that supports the health and development of everyone it touches. In just a few short years Clinica Verde has gone from idea to reality and has become a true support system for the Boaco community. Clinica Verde has made the most of every dollar donated to the cause and is now working on sustainability through larger grassroots support because each dollar can make the difference in a person’s life. I am blessed to be part of Clinica Verde and its goal to support Health & Hope throughout the world.

As a Founding Member of the Board and the Principal Architect for the Project, it has been my great pleasure to sign on to Clinica Verde. Over the past 30 years I've worked on many community projects and very few capture my heart and mind like CV has. First, the benefits of this type micro-healthcare produces immediate results in impoverished communities. Second, it's easily duplicated and therefore can be tailored to a community's specific needs -- in the case of CV Boaca, Nicaragua, families were the primary end users. They needed access to healthcare but information and education as well. Finally, the environmentally friendly design and building methords challenged me as an architect and the Board in general to bring something holistic and lasting to our world.

I have been working with Clinica Verde since 2007 and with another non-profit in Nicaragua for the past 7 years. I found the mission of Clinica Verde, to reduce the maternal and infant mortality rates within the country, such a compelling and worthy vision that there was very little doubt that I was going to get involved. All the people who are part of this organization, both on the Board of Directors and those tasked with implementation, are such a compassionate and caring group that it is energizing just to be part of this great cause.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

change the lives of thousands of impoverished mothers and children without access to good health care. Really, the vision and dedication of the people in organization has the potential for a sea-change of Hope + Health.

I am a dutch citizen and met the President and Founder of Clinica Verde in California late 2007 during our holiday. My wife and I were really impressed by the passion, commitment and knowledge of her and the Board of Clinica Verde and were able to raise funds in Europe for this wonderful cause. Clinica Verde is a prototype nonprofit organization in need of the last small push of donors to finish construction of their first, much-needed, project in one of the poorest regions in Nicaragua.

I have been involved with Clinica Verde for the past 3 years. I have been impressed by the quality of the board members in the US and abroad and their commitment to building a sustainable and innovative medical clinic. The project planning has been intensive and deeply considered and the ongoing construction is being carefully monitored by the board. All of the board members have given financial support to this project and will see that it is wisely spent.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

meeting the local unsung heroes of the rural community in Nicaragua, like the woman who runs the breakfast program for the children and the local health providers who do their best every day to provide care.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

articulate, introspective, caring, fun.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

build 4 more clinics and fund an endowment to secure financial independence.

I have visited Nicaragua on several occasions with Clinica Verde and seen first hand the deplorable quality of the medical resources available to persons in the area it seeks to service. I am impressed by Clincia Verde's "vision" to provide health and hope to persons who currently receive little of either. I also am impressed by the quality of the people associated with the effort, in both the United States and Nicaragua, and with their continuing success in implementing the vision.

The Great!

Clinica Verde is building an environmentally sustainable health clinic for women and children living in poverty in Nicaragua. The organization has a great, committed, bi-national board comprised of U.S. and Nicaraguan docs, a LEED-certified architect and development specialist, bilingual lawyer, the director of its Nicaraguan Foundation partner (The Violeta Chamorro Foundation), experts in finance, and others. We have strong grassroots support in Nicaragua and the support of established individuals and foundations in the U.S. and Europe. But most importantly, Clinica Verde exists out of the most human of impulses – to demonstrate compassion and love to those in need. We seek to change the lives of women, girls and their families by providing health and hope.

Invest in refining its programs in whole health education and replicate its design and approach in communities in need around the world.
