Our Annual Meeting in Granada, Nicaragua

Thank you for supporting Clinica Verde.
Thank you for supporting Clinica Verde.

Hi, Supporters:

I'm checking in with you again to provide a quick update of our progress. In November, we held our third annual meeting of the board in Granada, Nicaragua. It was a great, productive trip! I'm attaching a copy here of the Chairman's report that I delivered to the group.

A couple of brief updates from that meeting:

• We pushed our construction start date to January 2010 to give us time to do some additional fine-tuning to the plan. If all goes according to expectations, that should take us to a completion date of October 2010. Spread the word and help us gain support!

• We are very pleased to add to our Board of Directors Dennis de Vreede of Amsterdam, Netherlands. Dennis is currently CFO of the international real estate development company REDEVCO and has been an Advisor to Clinica Verde during the past year. Dennis has been a tremendous asset to our project, spreading the word and cultivating interest in our work outside of Latin America and the U.S. He'll be helping us with the financial side of Clinica Verde and heading up development in Europe. Welcome, Dennis!

In addition to the design and construction work that's taking place, we're working hard to raise $60K more to complete clinic construction. We could really use your help and support! Please let me know if you have any ideas.

Thanks again for being such stalwart supporters. I am so very grateful for you!

All the best, Susan Dix Lyons

Back from Nicaragua

Hi, People:

Just got back from a trip to Nicaragua a week ago. At this stage we're waiting for our Nicaraguan architect to complete his final drawings so we can put the work for the next stages out to bid. Things are looking good, but we need your support more than ever!

I'm posting a photo of some friends from the village of Empalme de Boaco. The family featured lives in the home in the background – one bed for 8 people and a hammock for the baby, who was sleeping inside. Most of the children sleep on the dirt floor, which, in rainy season (now!) seeps with water. You can imagine the health issues this brings up.

Thanks, as always, for your invaluable support!

Hasta pronto, Susan

Update on the Land Site!

Just checking in to share the latest news on the site! As you can see from the photo, the land site is now filled with select material and we're ready to move forward. I'm going to Nicaragua this week to check in on the progress.

On the U.S. front, I continue to work hard at raising funds and interest. Please continue to share our work with your friends!

Thanks again for your generous support.

Saludos, Susan
