Medical/Dental or Eye-Glass Clinic - Rivas Jinotepe


Project Need

Iglesia Luterana Sinodo de Nicaragua in cooperation with Lutheran Church-Canada is beginning new work in the barrios of Rivas and Jinotepe, Nicaragua. Already Missionry Rufino Laines has made contact with about 15 families who faithfully gather for study and worship in Rivas. Contacts have also been made in Jinotepe.

Important to his proclamation of the Gospel is a demonstration of the care and concern of the church for people. For this reason, Missionary Rufino is proposing that a medical/dental and/or eye-glass clinic be held in the community. Not only will it meet the immediate physical needs of people, but will also provide him with the opportunity to expand his outreach ministry in these communities.

Project Time

The time of the project would be dependent on the availability of a team. Missionary Rufino in coordination with our Mission Co-ordinator, Francisco Peralta will secure a location for such a clinic and provide logistical support.

Project Costs

In addition to the normal costs of conducting a medical clinic (transportation, housing etc), there will be additional costs for the rental of a facility, chairs, tables, etc.
