Nursing Heart Friends,
Speaking of local, this past week I met Rebecca, a transplant from Australia now living in Antigua who tracked me down through various connections because she was seeking help for a friend of hers. Her friend, I came to learn, is Doña Blanca. I have seen her many times outside of a restaurant on the Parque Central selling newspapers and didn’t know her until now.
Rebecca shared with me that Blanca is struggling with a crippling chronic condition and asked if Nursing Heart could help. We can. César, our Clinical Director, is now meeting with Doña Blanca regularly to help her manage her situation. This is all the more critical because a year and a half ago Doña Blanca saved a newborn’s life (it’s a long story) and is now raising the little girl.
It’s many stories like this that we at Nursing Heart attend to while doing our work as a bridge between groups of practitioners from the States and pueblos in Guatemala. We would like to do this more. It is one of the reasons we are seeking to widen our funding base through our general campaign. Your help is essential in order for us to bring the heart of nursing care to many people in need in Guatemala. A gift of $5 a month can help us make a big difference in the life of someone like Doña Blanca.
It’s simple to become part of our work. Just click this BUTTON. Thank you for helping Nursing Heart widen our funding base to become even stronger and offer more help to others.
If you are a nurse practitioner and would like to join us for the FAU group on November 3-10, we have space for at least two more. We would appreciate your help very much. Please write to me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested.
Also, our annual Friends of Nursing Heart program is scheduled for January 26-February 2. This program is open to nurses and others. We will be doing a building project and clinics during the week. It’s always a very special time. Click to learn more.
