Bolivia: A Glimpse Into 2015

Happy New Year & Good News from HOPE worldwide Bolivia…

We hope that your family and loved ones enjoyed a happy and healthy holiday season. 2014 was a busy year for us and we are so excited for what 2015 will bring!

Clinic Scheduled To Open This Summer

We are happy to share that the International Medical Center of HOPE worldwide is now officially recognized and is registered with the Bolivian government. We are working to have our local non-profit HOPE worldwide Bolivia Foundation established by March 2015. We have retained an architect with an outstanding reputation, to design/remodel the home that has been selected for the clinic. Our talented and dedicated team here in La Paz is continuing to search for clinic, laboratory and office equipment and furniture. Our timeline for opening the clinic has continued to shift due to unexpected and unavoidable challenges, but with great faith we are planning to open the medical center this summer.

Educational and Volunteer Program Update

The Patient Care (Nursing Assistant) Program will begin in February. This program will provide education, training, jobs and support for high school graduates who are either orphans or living in extreme poverty, enabling them to pursue a career in health care.

The HOPE worldwide team is teaching English as a Second Language to the Hospital Arco Iris staff and our partner church in La Paz as well as the community. Social programs continue to blossom.

The Sala de Juegos (playroom) within the hospital has served over 6,000 children and has provided Early Childhood Development information to their parents and caregivers.

The HOPE worldwide Lending Library also continues to grow. We have enjoyed hosting almost 200 volunteers and visitors in the past 3 years and we are looking forward to over 90 folks visiting us in 2015.

Thank you all for your support, encouragement and prayers this past year, we couldn’t do it without you! We are looking forward to seeing our dreams become reality in 2015, as well as many of you visiting us this year! God is indeed blessing the work of HOPE worldwide Bolivia.
