Milagro: Minnesota for Guatemala

Milagro: Minnesota for Guatemala

**UPDATE** March 11, 2020

Dear friends, 

Due to the recent concern regarding COVID-19, our planning committee has made the difficult decision to postpone the Milagro: Minnesota for Guatemala benefit event for Nursing Heart that was scheduled for Thursday, April 2, 2020. We have decided it is for the best to postpone this event for now until the current situation has stabilized. At Nursing Heart, we follow the Hippocratic oath: “First, Do No Harm.” As a nursing organization, we feel it is important to show leadership in taking precautions to limit the spread of the virus, to be prepared, and to encourage others to do the same.  

We appreciate your interest in supporting Nursing Heart. We plan to reschedule the event as soon as possible, and we will immediately inform you of the new date when it becomes available. When the new date is announced, we hope you’ll consider being with us. We would love to share our story with you! In the meantime, stay healthy and keep us in your thoughts as we continue to bring healing and hope to the people we serve.

Nursing Heart, Inc. was formed by Ron Noecker, RN, in 2011 to allow nursing care to respond to some of the complex health issues in Guatemala. Today, Nursing Heart serves over 6,000 patients per year and offers a variety of services at minimal cost through the help of nursing groups from the United States. This structure provides an opportunity for cultural exchange between communities in Guatemala and providers from the US. Thank you for your interest in our work. Countless miracles have taken place. We want to share them with you!

This is a benefit to support the organization’s continued work. For more information, call: Duane Noecker — (651) 235-3805.
