May 17, 2019 was the first day of our semiannual trip to Nicaragua. After a full day of travel we arrived in Managua after 1:00 a.m. We planned to board a plane to Puerto Cabezas the next morning, so it was a very short night’s rest. Continue reading “Our Latest Visit”
When people donate they usually want to know two things: Is my money going to the cause I want to support and do recipients appreciate what I give?

Why choose to support Adelante Mujer when there are so many places in the world where people are displaced from their homes by war; where hunger is common; where basic needs like clean water, health care, and shelter are unavailable? We all have limited resources and want to help others less fortunate. How do we choose when we cannot help everyone?
The very first 8 Adelante Mujer medical graduates from URACCAN (University of the Autonomous Region of the Caribbean Coast of Nicaragua) have now completed their 3 years of required community service. When they finished their 6 years of study, our funding stopped, but they are not yet at the end of their program nor of their expenses.
When we travel to Bilwi, Puerto Cabezas, we regularly visit the local hospital to check on our students and some of our graduates who are now practicing doctors. My first visit was in 2016 and I was shocked to see the conditions (see the Jan. 2017 blog ‘My First Trip: Bilwi, Puerto Cabezas).
These nine remarkable woman graduated from URACCAN University on Feb. 24, 2018. We now have a total of thirty-one doctors who were supported by your donations and are now working as doctors in that region. These doctors received your support, through Adelante Mujer, between one to four years during their studies. All nine have now begun their internships at the local hospital and clinics.
People have many reasons for giving. What follows are some facts about giving and some of the comments we have received from our donors:
If you believe in miracles, you will see it is a series of miracles that support the success of Adelante Mujer. And who are the miracle makers?
