Help thousands get kidney disease treatment

The new year is already off to an amazing start

Dear La Isla Foundation supporter,


I want to take this opportunity to thank you. You are one of over 100 people who contributed to improve kidney healthcare in Nicaragua. We are incredibly grateful to you for your support.


This year is already off to an amazing start. This week we were awarded a research grant from Baxter International-- $17,294 to support this project. The approval letter informed us that our proposal was one of eight selected from a very competitive group of fifty-two submissions from around the world!


We could not have gotten this grant without your support. 


Baxter believed in us because of the work you made possible. Thanks to you, we have started to make big steps in sustainable, long-lasting improvements in kidney healthcare in Nicaragua.


Your donation has truly been an investment in healing this community affected by the chronic kidney disease epidemic.


Thank you all so much again! We will keep you informed about new exciting developments.


With gratitude,

Dorien and the rest of the LIF Public Health Team
