My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Clinica Verde, Angwin, CA, USA
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.
