My first trip to Nicaragua - Clinica Verde
I am leaving today for a trip to Boaco, Nicaragua to visit Clinica Verde a global healthcare organization with a holistic and sustainable approach. They provide clinical care, nutrition, and health education to their cherished patients. But above all they are building a community health center that is ethical, sustainable, innovative, and compassionate.
In Nicaragua life is difficult and many people struggle with living a life with few choices or opportunities. I have learned that Nicaragua is the second poorest country in Latin America and that one out of every four pregnancy is from teenagers between the ages of 15-19. Chronic malnourishment is common and children frequently die from easily preventable diseases.
Clinica Verde is dedicated to a beautiful and powerful intention:
EVERY PERSON MATTERS!
No matter who you are Or where you live
This is an environmentally sustainable health clinic for impoverished for women and children that provides prenatal and postnatal care but also provides education, support compassion and understanding. A place for girls where they can learn to care for themselves and see opportunity. They serve thousands of women and children each year.
I am totally impressed all Clinica Verde offers from it’s building, clinical services, educational programs and most of all dedication to empowering women, showing that they are loved, and not alone. They are truly making a difference in the world!
I look forward to a lasting relationship and involvement in helping Clinica Verde in any way I can. I am so excited to be share about my experience and be of service in anyway I can. Follow me on Instagram and on Facebook for up-to-date photos from the visit.
