Thank you to all our friends in North Carolina who came out today at the 8th Annual Golf Tournament! Because of you we raised over $80,000 to support the elders in Nicaragua!
The North Carolina long term care community began its relationship with the Jessie F. Richardson Foundation (JFRF) and the elders of Nicaragua in 2006. This long-standing partnership has had a tremendous impact on the lives of many elders living in the Hogar de Ancianos, or home of the elders, in Jinotepe. Many of our long term care partners, including providers and vendors, have witnessed these amazing results on the faces of the more than 35 resident elders of the hogar and the staff who work there.
Some of the things we have accomplished with the proceeds made from this event are providing much needed equipment, develop a pharmacy business and replace water tanks so that these elders have their most basic needs in life met. Also located at the hogar is a national training center for eldercare – the only one of its kind in all of Central America.
Thank you to our truly special and generous supporters in North Carolina for helping to keep this impact going!
