My introduction to Clinica Verde came from a dinner a few years ago when Susan Dix Lyons asked my husband to be a Board Member. Though I felt his plate was full with other non-profit board responsibilities, I could only encourage him to become involved. The dedication, passion and respect displayed by this Board to all aspects of their mission is truly amazing in the non-profit and volunteer world.

I am the Parish Priest of the Episcopal church taht the Lyon's family attends in St helena, CA. It has been both a privilege and a blessing to be a witness to the inception of Cinica Verde, and now to see it about to open its doors. Susan Lyons has incredible passion, administrative expertise, and team-building skills that would be the envy of any Pastor. The work she has done to cast a life-changing vision and galvanize people around it is nothing short of miraculous. Were one to ever wonder how the hand of God works to make love manifest in a broken worls, one need look no further than Clinica Verde. What a story and what a ministry. May God continue to so richly bless it. Pax, MAC+

I believe in the good works of Clinica Verde because the organization will improve the lives of the imoverished by providing the medical care and equipement we all take for granted. For instance, Clinica Verde will reduce the high number of preventable deaths that result from complications during pregnancy, birth, and the postpartum period in a largely rural and low-income area. Having said this, the overall vision of the founders is to increase educational attainment and to promote economic opportunity.

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.

Cinica Verde is a very important project, not only for the small Nicaraguan community in Boaco, but for the rest of the world. It is a model that if succesfu, could be used in other countries and towns with similar needs around the world. I a m very satisfied with the Organizaion and the way they have mobilized to gather resources.

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.

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.

After 10 years of personal experience in Nicaragua & varied experiences with other non-profits, I can unequivocally say, that Clinica Verde is not only filling a desperate need, but their execution is exceptional on every level; organiztional, fiscal, environmental, bi-national & most importantly emotional. Compassion leads them while intelligent execution is making their goals a reality. There is no non-profit that meets higher standards.

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.
