Medicines For Nicaragua

MEDICINES FOR NICARAGUA is a non-profit, non-partisan organization that supports medical needs of Nicaraguans through the Clínica Juanita Connelly Mendoza in Managua, Nicaragua. The Clinic provides a caring, consistent staff who know the patients and work with them holistically to meet physical, mental and family needs. Tax ID 23-2679437


We are an all volunteer organization, and every dollar that you give to us goes directly to helping people in one of the poorest countries in the world.  About 2000 patients are treated every year. With the help of people like you, we have provided a gynecologic exam table and wall mounted electric otoscope/ophthalmoscope to facilitate more comprehensive exams.  The water supply at the clinic is unreliable. With money from donations, we installed a small “water tower” behind the clinic (and paid to repair it this year when it sprang a leak) so potable running water is always available. The budget for all this isn’t much by American standards, but the $13,600 a year comes from the $50, $100 or $200 donations we receive. We rely on each donation.

Your contribution of $25 will treat middle ear infections in 33 children and a donation of $50 will provide a month’s medication for 100 adult diabetics. A gift of $100 will treat parasite infestations in 12 children. The medicines that are prescribed are purchased from local companies and given without charge.

All donations are tax deductible.
