How are villages chosen?

Community leaders and residents of villages in North Nicaragua obtain a “Solicitud de Servicios Para La Comunidad” (Application For Services To The Community) from Corner of Love staff in San Ramon. This application includes general questions about their village, such as population, facilities available, last visit from MINSA (Nicaragua’s Ministry of Health), and any special health cases. Completed applications are reviewed and selected according to greatest need and feasibility of hosting a medical-dental brigade with special attention given to the level of native leadership in the area, as heavy assistance is needed from local coordinators.
