Divine Mercy Care represents Jesus by caring for and healing the sick, to include those who cannot affort it. This is an organization we should all give to.
Divine Mercy Care is a place where women can get excellent health regardless of their ability to pay. Although I have been a patient since before they became a non-profit, I have always observed the diversity of the clientele, ranging from Muslim women and other immigrants to prosperous local people. Once, I saw a poor circus performer being treated with dignity and respect. Children are welcome and the waiting room is full of toys, so that poor women can bring their other children comfortable in the knowledge that they will not be frowned upon or endangered. Although this is an ob-gyn centered group, I was diagnosed with another condition that would have gone untreated for years. I believe they make maximum use of their resources, with few frills, and that is why I am a donor also.
The reason I chose to donate to Divine Mercy Care was that I had heard great things about the services they provided women in the area of obstetrics and gynecology. As every woman knows personal, loving care in this area of her life can have a huge impact in her physical, emotional and moral life. The doctors and healthcare providers are not only concerned with providing great medical care but also want to bring the love of Christ to each woman who comes in by offering a loving environment and prayer instead of practicing medicine as if there were a break between that and other dimensions of a woman's life.
I became a donor after witnessing first hand what Divine Mercy Care does for women and seeing that they are true to their mission to empower women who find themselves in challenging circumstances. While I have seen some institutions that try to help hispanic immigrant women, I have never seen one that truly provides women with information, health care and support without demeaning her dignity. The women I saw were faced with crisis pregnancies with no health care, often without a supportive husband or boyfriend and not infrequently in an abusive relationship. Each woman was counseled personally and treated as an individual with dignity. No one was judged, rather they received love, emotional support, clear information in their native language, referrals for help, and an advocate to help them through the difficult time.
I am writing to tell why I am a Divine Mercy Care and Tepeyac Family Center donor. Divine Care is based in N. Virginia and they assist help women in many ways from natural childbirth to menopause. They help women, if needed, with food, shelter, prenatal and post partum care. They welcome all women regardless of race, religion,culture, or financial status, with or without medical insurance. Their areas of expertise are general obstetrics, high risk obstetrics, gneral gynecology, natural family planning, infertility, premenstrual syndrome, menopause, hormone replacement,post traumatic stress, adrenal stress, laparoscopic surgery and tubal reanastomosis. And most important of all birth control for contraceptive purposes, abortions or abortion inducers will NOT be dispensed or recommended. Divine Care is the one place where a women can get care knowing it is given the way God planned.
I learned about Divine Mercy Care when my daughter went to work there. She was a paid employee working with the medical team. I love in NC and she would tell me of the wonderful work that was being done there and all in accordance with the Catholic Christian tradition and with such love and caring. I only wish we had more of these clinics and more of these Doctors and medical workers to be available to all of us. God Bless You
