We are working with FNE International on their Salud Para Todo Los Ninos project based in Leon, Nicaragua. You can find information on SPTLN here!
Our team is planning a novel and ambitious approach to care delivery. Because SPTLN’s patient cohort is complex, we plan to visit patients in their homes. Visiting them in their homes will allow us to holistically approach their medical needs. For example, some of the children cannot walk and while we may be able to measure for wheelchairs, if there are steps/elevated landings, a wheelchair may not improve the child’s mobility at home.
Our team makeup is unique! Being so interdisciplinary will allow us to approach each child and family from our different perspectives. Not only will the children and their families benefit, we expect the students to learn from each other!
Ways to help!!
Donate! We are committed to providing comprehensive care to the children and families in the program. We anticipate that we will identify many needs and meeting those needs require money. Our in-country partners and SPTLN/FNE staff work with the families year-round and, with your help, will have the resources and funding to meet the needs we identify.
Buy Coffee!! Through our partnership with Twin Engine Coffee ( a local Nicaragua based coffee producer), they donate a portion of the proceeds to FNE and donations in May, June and July will be allocated to our trip and SPTLN! Not only do you get to support us, you support Nicaragua farmers AND get some delicious coffee (we recommend the Elefante!)
