On October 5th Tropical Storm Nate hit our communities in Nicaragua at Project Limón. Floods have damaged homes, destroyed crops, and have left communities with many challenges to face in the months ahead. Many families have lost everything, but continue to press forward thanks to support from their neighbors, FIMRC, and you!
We believe the most effective programming and activities are created to address the needs expressed by the community. Not only does our community direct our efforts, they also play a vital role in every step we take toward fulfilling our mission: To provide access to medical care for underprivileged and medically underserved families around the world.
Summer International Health Fellowships are packed with opportunities for service and exposure. For Project Bududa Alumnae Amanda Hanemaayer, the fellowship deconstructed her views on healthcare standards and community responsibility. Her thoughts, photos, and impressions from Uganda portray a SIHF experience worth remembering.
