Medic Outpost Update

Fundraising Drive

Medic Outpost has a goal in 2021 of funding a used training van for our programs. The van will be used to provide onsite training to first responders in rural volunteer EMS and Fire departments in Texas. They are in need especially in these Covid time. Please help us achieve this goal. We are well on our way thanks to a generous donation from one of Medic Outpost's board member, David Price. We desperately need this van to provide our programs to rural Texas and increase our fundraising efforts at sporting events and other fundraising opportunities. Any amount will help so please help us start the year at full speed. If you know any companies or organizations that would be interested in a sponsorship with the van and Medic Outpost, there are opportunities available. For more information please email larry.hill@medicoutpost.or

Medic Outpost News

Happy New Year to all of the Medic Outpost family. I hope all had a happy and safe holiday season. We are planning a big aggressive year in 2021 and we are confident that the worse is behind us and Medic Outpost can get back to work. Here is what is in the works.

News

  • Medic Outpost is working to ramp up our image and presence in the nonprofit arena. In addition to the training van, we are going to be upgrading our website and hopefully this newsletter. That is all on me. Our goal is to get out to more events and spread the word about our work as the vaccines begin to improve the situation.
  • Training will start again in rural Chiapas and Hidalgo states of Mexico in late February. Our plan is to go deep into the Jungles of Chiapas and reach those communities that have been cut off from access to medical care because of their association with the Zapatista political movement. Logistics will be a nightmare but with the help of our friends in the Ministry of Health and Dr. Rodrigo Lopez, our newest Outpost team member, we should be able to pull it off. These people are in need and have been forgotten for almost 20 years.
  • Medic Outpost is very excited about our new program with student doctors. In Mexico, medical students are required to do a year of social service before receiving their medical license. They do this social service in rural clinics that Medic Outpost is training in and helping. Our new program will hire these young doctors for a small stipend to teach our neonatal and first responder programs in their rural communities. This program will expand our reach and increase the numbers of villagers we reach by ten fold. The stipend is small but almost as much as the government pays them so it is good for the doctors and for Medic Outpost. The Medic Outpost trained new doctors will be a valuable asset to the Medic Outpost team in the future. Very exciting. If you would like to help sponsor a village please let me know. It would help us tremendously.

I left his in here from last newsletter because it is a huge focus for us in 2021.

Recurring donations are the life blood of a successful nonprofit so please help us identify entities that would be willing to join us. We do have some benefits for those organizations that participate.

  • NOW WE NEED HELP FINDING BUSINESS, CHURCH, AND INDIVIDUAL SPONSORS. If your company, church or any individual would like to be involved with a small monthly donation we would appreciate the assistance. Sponsors will receive some nice benefits for their support in addition to helping rural communities. Please contact me if you would like to participate or know an organization that would like to get involved.
  • The Medic Outpost Christmas Gift program was very successful. We sold Medical Kits that will be donated to rural clinics this year. A special thanks to Malynda Richardson and Megan Hotze Creative for their generous purchases. Those kits are still available if you would like to donate one in the name of a family member or organization.
