Timotea has a lot to share with her peers, her community, and with you.

Timotea has been a health promoter in her community of San Onofre for over 17 years.

Timotea has been a health promoter in her community of San Onofre for over 17 years. Last year, she was chosen to become a Mentor for other health promoters in her region because of her outstanding leadership skills and long-term experience. Last December she told us a story of a young mother from her community who had just given birth to her first child. 

“I would like to give thanks to the people who donate money to help our work in the communities," says Timotea, "because without your help, we would not be able to accomplish very much."

1st Health Promoter and Health Educator Training of 2015

Over this ten-day training, 6 newer health promoters, 3 mentors, and 12 health educators from Nejapa all set aside time to come together to learn from AMOS staff and mentors to increase their knowledge and skills about primary health care for their communities.

They traveled to 3 different locations and learned about:

  • The mission and vision of AMOS
  • The importance of taking a census of their community & how to take a census
  • How to treat a person with/without medicine
  • How to check a person’s vital signs
  • How to fill out patient care paperwork
  • How to coordinate with MINSA
  • Signs of danger in pregnancy
  • Breastfeeding support

Thank you to Verna and The Olive Tree for hosting and imparting your knowledge to our team!

Rural Immersion Experience: Aug. 4-16, 2015

Are you wanting to gain primary health care experience, but can't commit for a full summer internship? Then check out our Rural Immersion Expereince trip!

Application deadline is April 1st (and no, this is not an April Fools joke).

Apply NOW for the Rural Immersion Experience trip 2015.

Where We Serve:

AMOS is now serving alongside 33 rural communities in Nicaragua. Community populations can vary between 200 to 700 individuals. Most of these families have dirt floors, use latrines, wash their clothes in nearby rivers and streams, and let their livestock roam through their kitchen and bedrooms. One of our dreams is to come alongside each family member in a meaningful way to bring about proper sanitation and hygiene so their present and future health will be better than it was yesterday.

At the end of February, a delegation from St Wilfrid's Episcopal Church went to Cumaica Norte to teach women about the importance of getting regular pap smears to test for HPV and cervical cancer.

Before the training a woman asked, “Does all cancer start in the breast?”

By the end of the training, these women understood what cervical cancer is, where it originates, and how to treat it. They felt comfortable sharing their concerns about their bodies and were intently learning all that the group had to teach them about their health. 

Thank You March Delegations:

- FBC Ann Arbor, MI
- University of Wisconsin RAD-AID
- St. Wilfrid's Episcopal Church, CA
- AMOS Board of Directors
