Dear Cherished Supporters:

We want to share with you a few updates since our last report.

• In early May, we held a training and counseling session at Clinica Verde for 30 mothers and young women over dangers and warning signs during and after pregnancy. The session took place, thanks to a partnership with Foundation Juan XXIII and its COMSALUD project, with support from USAID. Clinica Verde nurses Yasmina Diaz and Azucena Narvaez also provided training on proper nutrition during pregnancy. 

• Engineers representing the renewable energy company Asofenix and the international nonprofit Green Empowerment visited Clinica Verde on May 8 to perform an energy audit at the clinic. We're working with these excellent organizations to reduce our energy consumption and explore renewable energy alternatives, including solar panels. We're excited about the work. Stay tuned for our course of action! 

• Under the leadership of Peace Corps volunteer extraordinaire Kelli Stam, 10 high school seniors from Boaco last week presented their findings from a marketing study for Clinica Verde. We asked the students to survey the local population on their use of local pharmacies and purchasing behavior in order to see what opportunities exist for Clinica Verde. The students did an impressive job, surveying 139 locals between the ages of 16 and 77. We're studying their conclusions and recommendations, which were excellent. We hope and expect that these local students will continue to guide and inform our work in their community. 

• Three inspiring Aussies continue to cycle across Europe to raise funds for Clinica Verde! Watch a short video on their trip here:

Thanks for continuing to be a part of our work in the world!
