Founded in 2007 by Susan Dix Lyons and Cristiana Chamorro, Clinica Verde (“Green Clinic”) is a nonprofit charitable organization formed to build and assist sustainable health clinics that improve maternal and infant healthcare in Nicaragua. They promote socially responsible design and green technologies in the developing world while creating health partnerships with communities in need.
As the second poorest country in Latin America, Nicaragua has one of the highest rates of adolescent fertility and maternal mortality in the hemisphere. The country was selected for the first clinic, due to this extreme need for support and the personal experiences of the founders.
The charity will provide service to over 18,000 women and children living in poverty.
