Gratitude is an overwhelming force at each of our project sites. The opportunity to provide access to medical care to under-served populations is an honor. Communities are also grateful for health services and programs made available by FIMRC. This month we are especially thankful for our team in Peru at Project La Merced. With #GivingTuesday approaching, we applaud their accomplishments and hope to advance their progress with the holiday season.
Some say that September is the other January - the school year begins again, the leaves change, the weather cools, and we seem to get a new start. We can go back to basics, back to the primary concept. As we step into September, we can start to remember those building blocks that have gotten us here - we can go back to grassroots.
In 2002, the Foundation for International Medical Relief of Children was founded. For the past fifteen years, we have walked hand in hand toward healthier communities. We started in Alajuelita, Costa Rica and have grown to eight other countries as we gained the experience to expand our model of community participation and volunteer involvement.
