Review for Curamericas Global, Raleigh, NC, USA
I had the privilege of joining Curamericas on a volunteer trip to Guatemala in August 2016. I was humbled and inspired by their meaningful efforts. They have set out an ambitious (some might even think unattainable) objective: to lift the health of new mothers, their infants, and their children in the places with the highest infant mortality rates in world. On the trip, I saw firsthand that they were succeeding. Progress will necessarily come incrementally. But Curamericas is moving, and will continue to move, their partner communities in the right direction. A particularly impressive aspect of Curamericas efforts is that they do not impose what they perceive as “right”. Rather, they begin only after being asked to participate by entire communities. The efforts are organized by people, and the ownership of those communities in the process makes the possibility of continued success seem real.
