The last fundraising campaign launched by Friends of Barrón was focused on building, staffing and supplying a permanent medical and dental clinic in Barrón. And it has come to pass. The new clinic was opened in February 2020.
The medical and dental clinic is staffed by a Mexican Dentist, Doctor and Nurse who are in the community providing ongoing and accessible care. FOB CANAM has committed to financially support the clinic for the next 11 months as part of a pilot program. They pay for the professional salaries, the rent and the supplies to keep the doors open. In its world quest to leave no stone unturned, COVID hit Barrón as well; the clinic had to shut down for 4 months due to lack of PPE. Re-opening happened in July after purchasing PPE and now care can continue where it normally would be completely absent. You can imagine this 4 month wrench-in-the-works strained the charitable budget: rent needed to be paid and professionals kept on retainer. It is time to ask again for donations to keep this long awaited accomplishment open and functioning.
Bottom line is that FOB needs $2000 a month to operate the clinic and has already received some generous donations. Will you help us bridge the gap to fund the coming year? Our goal is to raise an additional $15,000. After the pilot year, we hope to have the clinic be financially independent and/or supported by local or state government. In this way, it can become a truly permanent and integrated part of Barrón; run by Barrón, for Barrón. Visit the website https://fobnews.org for details and more pictures.
The best news is that there is a donor who is matching all donations to the Medical/Dental Clinic received after October 20, 2020, up to $6500. So far we have received $2000 worth of donations that qualify for the match. Any amount is appreciated that will help us reach this goal.
