Progress Underway

Hi there!

It's been a while since we have last posted, but things are going swimmingly at the GlobeMed at Northwestern chapter. We raised over $5000 for the clinic through campus fundraising events and individual donations for the H.O.P.E. Center, and sent $1300 to the clinic for security and utility payments for the next six months. Also at Northwestern, we are preparing the next team of students to visit and work at the clinic this summer, expanding the nutrition project and adolescent sexual health center, as well as conducting research on maternal nutrition and correlation to pregnancy and healthy childbirth.

At the clinic, the nutrition project is well underway, with three peer educators trained and working in their communities to monitor soybean crop growth as well as health of children under five. Our sexual health program has successfully trained 100 students to become peer educators and lead workshops in secondary schools across Ho town. An annual report is being compiled and will be uploaded shortly.

Thank you for all your support, and please continue to stay updated on our cause!
