Partnership: Nicaragua    


Mission

     

Partnership With Nicaragua is Successful and Growing!

 

  • Partnered with the health care system of Managua in order to create a fully functioning cardiac surgery center with adjacent Cardiac Intensive Care Unit for the people of Nicaragua.

  • Shipped a 40-foot container of pediatric medical supplies.

  • Have partnered with the First Lady of Nicaragua in order to reduce the number of woman in Nicaragua who are affected by cervical cancer.  Two ambulances were donated by American Medical Response (and outfitted as mobile clinics by MRF).  This service brings preventative care to Nicaraguan women living in the rural areas and has helped to reduce the rate of cervical cancer.

  • Donated a large supply of firefighter turnouts (thermal protective wear) for the Managua Fire Department.

  • Sponsored the transport to California, housing, treatment and surgery for a twelve year old Nicaraguan girl who needed definitive care for debilitating cardiac condition.  The condition was corrected and she is now thriving.
