We have invited you here to help us raise funds to provide the FIMRC clinic in Limon, Nicaragua with much needed medical supplies. The clinic often runs low on supplies that are readily available to people in the United States but are very hard to come by in Nicaragua. These supplies include Clorox wipes, tongue depressors, alcohol swabs, plastic Ziploc bags, and many medications and vitamins. 100% of your donation will go towards purchasing these supplies. By funding something as small as a box of alcohol swabs, you are contributing to improving the health of well deserving children in a BIG way.
As a Chapter of FIMRC, we help to serve as a voice in our community and play a part in upholding the mission of FIMRC. In March we are sending a group of members to the clinic, where adequate health care is lacking and children are dying from preventable or treatable diseases such as diarrhea, respiratory disease, and malnutrition. We are hoping to have collected enough money by the time we go on the volunteer trip to purchase and bring the supplies with us.
FIMRC is an organization dedicated to improving pediatric and maternal health in the developing world through the implementation of innovative and self-sustainable health improvement programs. Through determination and the belief that all children deserve health, FIMRC declares itself as a major force in the delivery of healthcare worldwide – one clinic and one child at a time.
Thank you so much for taking the time to read about our mission and visiting our donation page!
Lots of thanks,
