We did it! The hospital in Quilali just got their new microscope thanks to Divine Daughters Unite.
After assessing the needs of the hospital while in Nicaragua in December, it was clear that DDU could make the most difference by purchasing this needed piece of equipment.
Earlier that day I had assessed that the secondary school needed a microscope for their science lab. So when the laboratory director of the hospital shows me the sorry state of their old microscope, DDU had a wonderful opportunity to help improve both education and health care.
I met with the mayor of Quilali who personally assured me that DDU’s donation of funds would go to purchase the microscope for the hospital and the old microscope would go to the school.
The mayor and the director of the hospital laboratory traveled seven hours one way to purchase the Olympus microscope with funds donated by DDU.
How exciting for Quilali’s hospital, high school, patients and students who will benefit from improved health care and educational opportunities!
Thank you, DDU, for this opportunity to serve.
