We are excited to announce that FIMRC will be participating in GivingTuesday on November 29, 2016. This year's campaign will benefit our project site in Alajuelita, Costa Rica. 100% of funds raised this GivingTuesday will go towards the purchase of new medical equipment for our clinic as well as the supplies needed to expand our reach through mobile medical clinics.
We take our mission very seriously, and participation is a HUGE part of FIMRC’s success, and can bring about challenges when participation is low. In Nicaragua, this is seen through all three forms of participation: the community, the staff, and the volunteers. All these people help to make up the FIMRC family, and we are so grateful for the work they do in improving health and awareness within Rivas.
