Together For Health and Well-Being
In Nicaragua, our community clinic serves over 3,000 people each year. We also provide in-home care for local families living with special neurological and pediatric needs. Our full-time nurse provides primary care to residents and manages a team of 15 local health promoters. Together, they identify the most vulnerable families so our donors can make timely investments in medicine, transportation to specialists, medical home visits, food, and even housing. Comunidad Connect brings people together to create lasting change for all stakeholders.
