The Children’s Well-Being Foundation has expanded its services and increased the number of undeserved children it treats in Costa Rica. Our services are desperately needed across the country, especially within rural areas where people don't have access to urban clinics.
In June 2016, we launched the fully operational CWB Mobile Clinic.
The CWB Mobile Clinic is equipped for medical visits and will expand our reach to several other large precarios where there are large, underserved populations where it is too expensive to safely manage permanent clinics.
The CWB Mobile Clinic allows us to reach rural areas and provide care to thousands of children who otherwise would have fallen through the cracks of their healthcare system. We provide primary care services, eye exams, and psychological services.
After offering services in the CWB Mobile Clinic, we have successfully doubled the number of children we are able to treat - 15,000 in the first year - and look to continue to expand.
To be fully operational and serve the most possible number of undeserved children and their families we estimate we need about $1,500 per week. Any amount will help us operate the new Mobile Clinic. Thank you!!!
