C2C is blessed to have friends like you. We are incredibly grateful that you have cheerfully and generously helped us provide thousands of families with quality, reliable care this year! A few highlights from 2014:
-Containers 2 Clinics became Care 2 Communities – choosing a refreshed identity that focuses on the valuable services we provide to families.
-In Camp Coq, Haiti, at our newest clinic’s first birthday, we celebrated more than 2,000 patient visits in just one year.
-Our partner in Port-au-Prince, Grace Children’s Hospital, has completed rebuilding after 2010’s disastrous earthquake. This wonderful progress means our container clinic can be moved to provide primary care to families in a new community in 2015.
-In Namibia, we have provided maternal and pediatric care to thousands of women and children, and are fully integrated into the Ministry of Health’s programming, including campaigns to educate school children about the dangers of early pregnancy. We even received a visit from Namibia’s President, Hifikepunye Pohamba!
-We implemented a new electronic medical records system that allows our clinicians to spend more time on patient care and less on paperwork.
-Three new Board members, Dave Adams, Ruthie Barker, and Marie Marthe Saint Cyr, joined us as ambassadors for our mission.
-Two generous anonymous donors offered to match gifts of up to $100,000 between November 1st and the end of the year. Thanks to many of you, we are about halfway to achieving this goal, and hope to exceed it by the end of the year!
Thanks to your gifts, your support, and your sharing our mission with others, we are looking forward to an amazing 2015. In the coming year, we will launch two additional clinics in Northern Haiti, serving thousands of families who do not currently have access to high-quality care. Please watch for our e-newsletter next week for more updates, stories, and plans for 2015!
All of us at C2C are truly grateful for you and are wishing you a wonderfully happy Thanksgiving!
