Where we work
Nicaragua is one of the poorest countries in Central America and the second poorest in the Western Hemisphere. The needs of the poor, especially for medical care brought Hope Clinic International to do medical missions work in various communities, eventually establishing Tim’s Clinic in Estelí, Nicaragua.
The poverty in Nicaragua has caused extremely poor health conditions. Even though Nicaragua has a government sponsored health care program, almost 40 percent of Nicaraguans lack access to licensed doctors and quality facilities. Despite recent efforts by the government to increase maternal and child health services to rural and distant areas, children are still being left behind.
