Progress of La Fondita de Jesus en la Comunidad

Receive our greetings and gratitude for your help with this project, to promote the recovery and stabilization of communities after hurricane María! Thanks to your donations, “Conexión Móvil” Program provided clinical services during April, 2019, in the following six (6) communities of San Juan: Residencial Berwind, Resdencial Vista Hermosa, Barriada Figueroa, Río Piedras, Sabana Village Apartments and Plebiscitos. A total of 401 non-duplicated persons were impacted with 1,404 service units. Of those, 16% were homeless persons. The majority of the participants were 45 years of age or older, being the highest percentage 65+ (42%).

Health fairs have been coordinated, with services that included mammograms, sonomamographies and hygiene kits, among others. During the health fairs, our nurse had the opportunity to screen vital signs to 149 people, distribute 270 OTC medicines and facilitate six (6) workshops. The doctor, psychologist and drug counselor evaluated different conditions and behavioral needs of the homeless and other served persons.

Donors like you make it possible to continue impacting the lives of the residents of communities in San Juan, Puerto Rico, and work toward their self-sufficiency.

Thank you!

Progress of La Fondita de Jesus en la Comunidad

Thanks to GlobalGiving Foundation funds, we had the opportunity to continue with this project during February and March, 2019, to promote the recovery and stabilization of vulnerable communities after hurricane María passed through Puerto Rico. Thanks to your donations, we have been able to continuously provide clinical services with “Conexión Móvil” program, such as preventive and primary medical care, nursing, drug counseling and psychology, as well as food and other services, in 11 communities of San Juan. A total of 328 non-duplicated persons were impacted with 2,138 service units. Of those, 98% were homeless persons.

Also, health fairs have been coordinated, in order to impact more individuals in some of those communities. Around some of them, there are a lot of homeless persons looking for food and assistance, as well as very low income persons. These health fairs continuously allow us to screen vital signs and evaluate different conditions of the homeless and people that were severely affected by hurricane María.

Thanks to donors like you, La Fondita de Jesús can continue making a difference to help communities in San Juan, Puerto Rico, to work toward their self-sufficiency.
