We are raising funds for a Mobile Health Clinic in honor of our friend, administrator and general physician of our ministry in Nicaragua: Dr. Luis Ocampo.
Before his passing due to COVID-19 complications in May, our beloved general physician Dr. Luis had the vision to expand healthcare services farther and wider than ever before with the aid of a Mobile Clinic. We hope to make this vision a reality, by dedicating our end-of-year fundraiser in his honor. We are currently accepting your generous donations both for our general fund through our PayPal to continue offering healthcare and community programs, and specific donations here to this GoFundMe where all funds will be used to purchase a vehicle for Project El Crucero's team to be able to use as a Mobile Clinic.
Our estimated need for a mobile clinic vehicle is $20,000. This holiday season, at the end of such a tumultuous year - your financial gifts and your continued prayers are needed now more than ever. COVID-19 has shaken our world, communities, friends and family as we know it. Many of us, although impacted by the effects of the virus, are fortunate enough to have quality healthcare readily available if needed. The climate and the people in Nicaragua are not as fortunate. With political unrest and immense pre-existing and expanding poverty, many of the men, women and children, are left to their own devices for survival.
Project El Crucero currently serves around seven communities, but with the help of a mobilized health clinic - we will be able to reach more people and communities than ever before for years to come. The impact of your donation to help us donate a vehicle will reverberate and literally change human lives for years and generations to come.
If you can donate even $5 to our cause today, your financial gift will join together with the generosity of others to create a fund big enough to bring Dr. Luis' dream of a Mobile Health Clinic to life. There is no donation amount that is too small. We truly believe that it is god's will to continue on the great legacy of care, service and unwavering faith of Dr. Luis Ocampo through Project El Crucero. Please join us in embracing our community in Nicaragua. There is no better Christmas gift than giving the opportunity for a long, healthy and happy life.
Thank you very much for your continuous support of Project El Crucero's work. This year because of your donations, we were able to distribute over 1,000 face masks, implement 30 cloth mask sewing workshops, set up hygienic hand washing stations and provide free healthcare to hundreds of patients this year across seven communities.
