Clinica Verde
August 14, 2013

We have been going to Nicaragua for the past ten years as worker bee volunteers in the construction of self-help housing for rural villagers. On one of those early trips to the Boaco area we were working alongside Tim and Susan Lyons, a doctor and wife team with a heart to help improve health care for the rural poor. Susan took the lead in creating this dream of a medical facility called Clinica Verde that is now seeing more than 1,300 patients a month. Our annual trips to this area are now focused on doing what we can to help the clinic and its patients. It is a model of what can be accomplished by a heart driven soul like Susan's and those who come alongside to make this clinic such a success. We are most appreciative of the opportunity we have to participate in this success story. May God bless Susan, her board of directors, and everyone else who has helped to make this a reality.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Help raise funds to duplicate this model clinic in other Nicaraguan villages and other countries in Central America.
