Review for Clinica Verde, Angwin, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I joined their board after seeing the powerful way passion and love combine with practicality to provide value to people in one of the poorest nations in our hemisphere. Core principles like dignity and compassion play out in a space that patients find so warm and welcoming that it's a delight to be there. I love the way CV has partnered with others to create a thriving bio-intensive community garden that serves as a demonstration and education center. I love the way teens are mentored to become leaders to their peers and educate regarding reproductive wellness and planning. I love the whole spirit of the place and those behind it.

Review for Clinica Verde, Angwin, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

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!
