Earlier this year, a nonprofit called Manna Project International (MPI) reached out to AMOS after deciding to suspend some of their services in Nicaragua. Previously, MPI operated a clinic in the vulnerable Managua neighborhood of Villa Guadalupe. They hoped to find an organization who could continue providing primary and preventive health care to the people living there.

Many people living in the housing site of Villa Guadalupe used to work and live inside what was once the municipal dump. After decades of being exposed to pollution and contaminants and making a living by sorting and selling trash, the community members have significant health needs.

This August, we officially took on management of the Villa Guadalupe Clinic, and held a reopening ceremony with the staff and community members to celebrate!

Xochilt, gynecologist at the Villa Guadalupe Clinic, said: “Thank you for keeping this clinic open so our patients can continue to receive medical care!” 

We are grateful to be able to continue the work of providing primary and preventative health care in Villa Guadalupe. We are grateful to be able to serve approximately 4,800 more people in need! Thank you for helping us make this Clinic possible!

Because of you, we have yet another reason to smile! This August, we inaugurated the AMOS Dental Clinic on our campus in Nejapa!

Pictured alongside Executive Director Dr. David, Clinic Manager Dr. Ana Sandoval, and AMOS’ new dentist Dr. Maria Soto, a patient and community member from Nejapa cuts the ribbon to declare our Dental Clinic officially OPEN! 

Dental care helps patients prevent disease and maintain good health! Now, vulnerable people have access to affordable dental services, like teeth cleaning and polishing, fluoride application, fillings, extractions, X-rays, and more!

Your support helps provide more comprehensive health and wellness services to more people in need. Thank you for bringing healthy smiles to Nicaragua!

    IN 2009 I visited the El Samaritano Mission run by the Dr Sirka and his wife Carolyn with the annual delegation from The First Baptist Church of Fort Lauderdale. I am now a Missionary in Lithuania and other parts of Eastern Europe. I am finishing up a book of several missions I have been on over the years. I was disappointed to learn that after Dr. Larry Thompson retired from FBC that the new pastor ceased all foreign missions we supported over the 13 years that I was a member there and long before I arrived. However, I am pleased to learn that AMOS the Austin group have continued to help with the people of Managua and the surounding Barrios. God Bless you for all you are doing.
