General Campaign 2018-2019

Our 7th Anniversary Invitation

We need your help as Nursing Heart (NH) enters its eighth year offering health-related services to underserved populations in rural Guatemala. You know from your own experience in Guatemala that many of the women, children, and men that are seen through our clinics would not have access to health screenings if not for you and Nursing Heart.

We are asking for your monthly support at either the $20 or $40 level, or an amount of your choosing. Your financial commitment will support the ongoing expansion NH’s health and pharmaceutical services, and help continue to subsidize travel costs for nursing groups so more people can understand the health needs of the beautiful people of Guatemala.

In particular, in 2018-19 your support will help us:

Provide wellness checks at 12 primary schools.
In 2017-2018, these checks involved over 1,500 energetic students who received fluoride treatments at the cost of $2.50 per child.

Provide cervical cancer screenings which have the potential to save women’s lives.
Last year over 6 percent of the 540 women screened were in need of and received cryotherapy. With your help we can spare many more women the devastating experience of seeking chemotherapy and radiation in Guatemala. In the rare event that women need more complex treatment, your gift helps us provide progressive services as needed.

Help us initiate a project to engage Guatemalan nursing students with community health committees.
This effort will support the setting of health priorities based on local needs and sustain services in the communities as a follow-on to NH clinics. These efforts will also forge bonds between Guatemalan and US nursing students and nurses.

NH is unique in its mission to provide health services to low-resource communities while also helping to expand horizons for US nursing students. We ask for your sustaining contribution to help us ensure that future nurses and healthcare professionals will continue to be able to have learning experiences in Guatemala.
