Nurses are a huge component of what makes FIMRC's work possible, and so we wanted to celebrate their impact for National Nurses Day! Nurses are employed at many FIMRC sites, supporting both clinical and health education programming. They often run several of the programs on site, and we couldn't keep it together without them! Their efforts do not go unnoticed, and below we've highlighted the differences and similarities between two nurses that work in different corners of our FIMRC world.
There is a growing awareness of ethical practices relevant to international service work. Good intentions alone are not adequate in properly addressing a community's needs. Louise Power, our Field Operations Manager in La Merced, Peru, is weighing in on effective and ethical approaches to volunteer abroad.
FIMRC operates 10 project sites in 9 countries around the world. Needless to say, our annual achievements are both broad and plentiful. As we 2017 comes to a close, we also reflect on the accomplishments made in our previous year through our 2016 Annual Report.
