Great job!!! We must take advantage of the changes (small as they may be) in USAmerica's congress, and begin our quest for change right away.


I am an Advisory Board for an interesting non-profit that provides health care for poor and isolated communities in Nicaragua. The Roberto Clemente Santa Ana Clinic www.nicaclinic.org staffed by the ever-patient and caring Dr. Julio Flores and nurses Martha Miranda and Carlos Peña, supplies free and low-cost medical care to the isolated villages of Limon, Rancho Santana and 41 surrounding communities in southwest Nicaragua.
The Clinic is named for Roberto Clemente, who played baseball for the Pittsburgh Pirates from 1955 to 1972, when he died trying to help the victims of the devastating Nicaragua earthquake.
Launched in 2004, the Clinic is the result of generous donations, and also the volunteer efforts of the Rotary Club of Pittsburgh, The Oxford Club, the Granados family and International Living Properties.
The Roberto Clemente clinic strives to educate the community on better health, as well as prevent diseases, cure viruses, and treat injuries and the chronic health problems endemic to this part of the world, where running water and flushing toilets are still quite rare.
The Clinic's new schedule of 24-hour availability, 7 days a week has greatly increased the number of services we have been able to provide to the locals and visitors of the region.
