BENEFITING: Nourish International
Chapter: University of New Mexico and University of California at Berkeley
Partner Organization: La Fundacion para la Autonomia y el Desarrollo de la Costa Atlantica de Nicaragua (FADCANIC)
This year, University of New Mexico and UC Berkeley Nourish and FADCANIC are continuing our commitment to increasing access to healthcare in Pueblo Nuevo, Nicaragua by expanding the existing small health clinic.
Last year, Nourish International at UNM and UC Berkeley helped carry out this mission by providing the resources necessary to build a maternity clinic in Pueblo Nuevo, Nicaragua. This year, we hope to continue to make a lasting, positive impact in the same community by further increasing access to healthcare for Pueblo Nuevo and the surrounding communities.
La Fundacion para la Autonomia y el Desarrollo de la Costa Atlantica de Nicaragua (FADCANIC) is a non-governmental organization based in Bluefields, Nicaragua that seeks to transform the social, political, economic, and cultural landscape of Nicaragua to benefit the indigenous and ethnic communities on the Atlantic coast.
