FIMRC's Project Limón, located on the Pacific coast approximately 120km from the capital of Managua, brings medical care to rural areas of Nicaragua. FIMRC's clinic serves as home base where specialty services are provided to women and children.
Volunteers maintain important roles in the clinic through assisting with charting patients' vitals, inputting data into our electronic medical record systems, building health based curricula on topics such as proper dental care, and observing clinical interactions with medical staff. Outside FIMRC's clinic, volunteers assist with outreach initiatives such as prenatal home visits, glucose testing for diabetics, and conducting assessments for the developmental program. No previous medical experience is required!
Over the course of your trip you'll receive an unfiltered experience in health care field work abroad, and learn about the tremendous impact that even one person can have!
