Clinica Verde's cistern

Hi, Global Giving Supporters:

I just got back from a trip to Nicaragua and wanted to share with you this photo of our awesome cistern. The cistern is located at the core of our building and will collect rainwater that we'll use to help support our water needs in the clinic.

We're working hard to move the project forward. Fund-raising is always the toughest part, so help us spread the word. Thanks again for your support – and feel free to contact me any time with your questions!

All the best, Susan

Hey, Global Giving Supporters:

Just a brief update to let you know we continue to move forward. Construction continues, and the walls are going up. If all goes according to plan we're still on track to complete construction by November of this year. However, we still need about $30K more to get us to the finish line. Spread the word and keep us in mind!

For a more complete update of our status, clink on the link to our May newsletter.

Keep in mind that you can often double your donations by getting your company to match yours. Many employees don't realize that their companies have this process in place, and these matching funds can have a huge impact on our work! Check with your company or place of work to see if they offer this option! And contact me at any time if you have ideas of your own.

Thank you for believing in us.

Abrazos, Susan

Hi, Global Giving Supporters!

Good news. Construction has begun on our land site in Nicaragua. We've hired an excellent project superintendent and feel confident with our Nica team. At this point, we expect a 10-month construction schedule, which takes us to late fall of 2010. Thanks for your continued support and interest. I can't tell you how important you are to us!

We still need to raise about $60,000 to complete basic construction, so spread the word! And please feel free to contact me at any time if you have questions about our work.

Abrazos, Susan

Hi, Global Giving Supporters:

Just checking in to provide you with an update on our construction. As you can see from the photo, things are moving forward. We've got a great team on the ground in Nicaragua! Our Vice-Chair and Project Development Master, Peter Stanley, is going down on April 10 to meet with the team and check progress.

We're also in the stages of planning a medical mission trip in advance of clinic opening sometime in early August.

We've raised 90% of our construction goal but still need about $60K to complete the budget! We could really use your help! Spread the word, share our story with your friends, family and co-workers, contact me if you know of any foundations or companies who might be interested in our work, and pray for our continued forward progress.

Our supporters are the foundation of Clinica Verde. Your love and compassion is the fuel of our good work – and we are extremely grateful for each and every one of you.

All the best, Susan

Dear Awesome Supporters:

As the year comes to a close, many of you will be thinking about who to support with your end-of-year donations. We ask that you please consider Clinica Verde.

In late January, we plan to begin construction on our environmentally sustainable health clinic for women and children living in poverty. We've spent the past 2 1/2 years designing, refining and working to build support for this plan, and we're proud of it. But most of all we're excited for the day that Clinica Verde will open its doors to the rural population of Nicaragua to provide health and opportunity to families in need.

We hope that you will continue to be a part of our vision and good work in the world. We need about $70,000 to complete construction.The economy has made fund-raising more difficult than ever, so your contribution is vital. Please help us to reach our goal!

We are deeply grateful for each and every one of you. Happy New Year – and thanks for your belief and commitment to our work.

Gratefully,

Susan Dix Lyons Peter Stanley Donald E. Farrar Dennis de Vreede Kenneth B. Weeman Dr. Timothy Lyons Dr. Mary Huber Bill Bylund Rafael Rios Dr. Elquis Castillo Dr. Ramiro Lopez Margarita Gurdian Cristiana Chamorro
