Clinica Verde is an organization that provides hope and most importantly, a solution to hundreds of Nicaraguan citizens in Boaco that need basic medical treatment. In a community where most citizens are excluded from the opportunity to seek out medical treatment at major hospitals in Nicaragua's capital city of Managua due to financial limitations, Clinica Verde has opened up their doors to offer an affordable option.
Beyond medical assistance, Clinica Verde is a pillar of togetherness and community in Boaco. People who visit feel like family and this is why they return. Truly a fantastic organization!

Clinica Verde does an amazing job getting important healthcare services to people in rural Nicaragua that need it and truly have no other options. In visiting the clinic, it was obvious that Clinica Verde works hard to make sure the community has a voice in determining what they most need and that Clinica Verde listens and responds to its stakeholders. The mission of the organization is crucial and the world would be greatly helped by having more organizations like Clinica Verde.

Had an opportunity to visit their various Nicaragua based clinics in 2018. What a great experience! I was so pleased to see the range of services they provide, and the care and compassion the staff exhibited. I was especially taken aback by the clinics growing of vegetables which were used to feed some patients and to educate them on nutrition.

La labor de la clínica en pro del bienestar de la comunidad es inmensa.
Los resultados de sus proyectos y servicios hablan por si solos
Como profesional en el campo de la salud y especialmente de la Salud Publica, considero que la filosofía de la clínica va en coherencia con los principios de los hospitales imán, los hospitales verdes y por tanto aporta al cumplimiento de los objetivos de desarrollo sostenible.

I had the opportunity to visit Clinica Verde this past January. I was thoroughly impressed by the broad range of services that were offered, the warm and welcoming environment of the clinic, and the professionalism of the staff. It was great to have the chance to visit the two new clinic outposts that were developed with the country's ministry of health which offered more opportunities to provide care to those in even more outlying rural communities.

Clinica Verde provides critical and indespensable public health services to clients in rural Nicaragua in a culturally sensitive manner. It provides clients with knowledge and services that they may not otherwise get. Clinica Verde represents a beacon of hope in otherwise very trying times for the people of Nicaragua. The work that they do day in and day out for the Nicaragua. community represents the highest quality nonprofit work that NGO’s can aspire to do!

This institution is an example of compassionate care and Public health programs with strategies to help with the social determinants of health. Currently in Nicaragua, Clinica Verde is a neutral place where everybody can receive services in spite of current social and economic crisis . CV also has a prenatal care program and a teen agers program that teach families about bio intensive garden as an strategy for food security.

I was an original member of Clínica Verde’s Board and my wife and I were important early funders of the effort. We were inspired by the Founder, Susan Lyons’, vision and her tenacity in pursuing that vision to create a new and different template for providing health, hope and dignity to persons in very poor countries who have never before experienced any of the three. We are pleased that Susan’s vision has been largely rewarded and proud to have participated in the effort. Although I no longer belong to the Board, my wife and I continue to support Clínica Verde financially and intend to continue doing so well into the future. It is one of the best things we ever have done with our money.

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.

Last year my fiance and I traveled to Nicaragua, one of the poorest countries in Central America (second to Haiti). The poverty in Nicaragua has created extremely poor health conditions, country-wide youth malnourishment and a plethora of unsupported young mothers trying to raise a new generation of healthy children.

This spring, I am honored to join the Clinica Verde team, and engage in this sacred outreach work for this amazing organization that is close to my heart. Conceived and developed by an incredible American women, Susan Dix Lyons, Clinica Verde has developed a new, sustainable model of global healthcare in rural Nicaraua. We provide high quality, dignified healthcare to adults, children, and adolescents. The model that Clinica Verde​ has developed approaches the health and wellbeing of their patients holistically, incorporating a combination of clinical care, health + nutritional education, and support in establishing supportive community networks.

This organization is one to support and to watch. A prototype clinic was established in Boaco, Nicaragua nearly five years ago, and outcomes have been tracked carefully in collaboration with researchers at institutions such as Stanford University​. The success that their first clinic has had is leading to larger-scaled visions on expanding this model across the country.

If you're looking to make a difference in this world, and in connecting and sharing our world resources, knowledge and potential to the regions of our globe that need it most, I could not recommend an organization more highly.

The first time I saw Clinica Verde it took my breath away. In an area with extreme poverty where cinder block and sheet metal shacks are the norm, this beautiful facility stood and clearly announced its purpose; to be a place people want to go.
I have been back to CV many times. I've watched the team hire talented, dedicated, compassionate staff who now care for thousands of families in need each year. I've watched it establish strategic partnerships with international organizations. I've watched it innovate and expand. And I've watched it impact the healthcare of an entire region in one of the poorest countries on the planet.
I pray that more people will learn about this amazing organization and travel there to witness their good work. I pray that talented people will continue to come forward to help. And I pray that more people will $upport it so that it can continue to change the world.

Over the past few years, I have been able to work as an Intern with Clinica Verde. My roles as an intern varied greatly from time to time but I always felt that what I was doing made an impact. I was able to see first-hand the clinic in action as I travelled to Boaco, Nicaragua with the non-profit four times. Seeing the great impact this organization had on the lives of Nicaraguans was amazing. This clinic provides the impoverished residents of Boaco with clinical care, health education, and nutrition. The leaders of this non-profit are extremely passionate and dedicated to improving the wellbeing of local Nicaraguans. I am so lucky to be able to say I had the opportunity to work with Clinica Verde and I am proud of the work the staff has done to create a strong, far-reaching non-profit organization.
