Nursing Heart Friends,
Earlier this month, I went with our new friends from Clemson University, Tracy and Roxanne, to San Juan la Laguna to introduce them to Maggie Cholotio and Salvador Lucan who will be continuing the work of Luis, Maggie’s husband in the months ahead. Luis was tragically killed in an auto accident earlier this year.
Maggie is taking over Luis’ business and Nursing Heart and friends are supporting her. Salvador will guide English-speaking groups while Maggie studies English. He studied with Luis as they gained their National Tour Guide license. The students from South Dakota, and all our BSN groups will receive their hospitality in the season ahead.
We are also thrilled to announce this week that Clemson University will be bringing two groups through the year ahead. It will be our pleasure and honor to share insights into international nursing work with them.
Our season officially gets underway in the first week of October as we welcome back our friends from the University of South Dakota. They will be installing nine stoves in San Lorenzo El Cubo. If you’d like to support them by donating a high-efficiency wood burning stove, click HERE.
In the photo, César, our clinical director, is rehearsing for his presentation to the group from South Dakota. He is not only taking on the job but also developing his English ability. He has a lot on his plate.
Our General Campaign is continuing. We are seeking 50 new monthly patrons of our work. We appreciate whatever you can do. Five dollars a month can make a big difference.
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.
