Clinic Makeovers

Project Las Delicias in El Salvador and Project Alajuelita in Costa Rica were both able to paint and spruce up their respective clinics, thanks to the effort and guidance of the field staff and the volunteers that put plans into action.

Current Project Alajuelita FIMRC Ambassador Mina Pashayi shared some pictures with us and checked in about the efforts of the recent volunteer group from Hofstra University:

"The Hofstra groups was very enthusiastic to not just work, but make a difference in any way they could... Among the regular volunteer duties, they reorganized the office and pharmacy. We also painted the clinic on one of the days they were here."

Thanks for the update, Mina. And we appreciate your efforts and help, students from Hofstra! 

Project Las Delicias FOM Marloes Nijboer also began 2012 with a clinic makeover. She was able to do this with the help of volunteers from TCNJ and the Las Delicias Teen Group!

Thanks for your help, volunteers from TCNJ! And as always, our Las Delicias Teen Group is in full gear to help. We are so grateful.

We need your input!
