I was staying at Playa Gigante, where I travel to frequently and unfortunately burned my feet. Being a glasses wearer, I took off my glasses to go swimming late one afternoon in
The doctor and (especially) the nurse, who treated me daily were absolutely FANTASTIC! When I returned to Canada and was seen at mu local clinic, they were extremely impressed with how good my feet looked, etc.
I bought land in Gigante a few years ago and am very glad that the clinic is there. Also, while I was there, I saw many local people using the clinic, which is great!
My partner has sent a donation.
We have a testimonial for the clinic. We were at Rancho Santana last year during the holidays and our 10-year old daughter was stung by a sting ray while boogie boarding at Los Perros. We rushed her to the clinic and they did an amazing job!
I’m most thankful for a small but growing medical clinic in the southwest corner of Nicaragua.” As sometimes happens with body surfing, a rogue wave flipped me upside down. Except this time, it smacked my neck hard onto the sand. After tumbling me around, the wave left me floating in less than a foot of water. There was just one problem: I was completely paralyzed from the neck down. The clinic’s ambulance transported me from the beach to the clinic. There, the staff administered initial intravenous fluids and other procedures consistent with a spinal cord injury. Were it not for their quick actions and the following of proper protocols, I wouldn’t be writing to you today.
Thank you again to the team the doctors and volunteers who helped me and saved my life.
