  9. I am writing today to let you know that CEDEJO, a women's clinic based in Ajijic that serves indigent women in this community, including those of the Tepehua community, is in critical need of funds. I started an online fundraiser in August of 2013 in a desperate attempt to keep the clinic open after volunteering with them and witnessing the need within this community for the services they provided. (I've posted about the clinic and the fundraiser multiple times on this board, i.e here and here). Over the last year, the online fundraiser has been the only funding source for CEDEJO's clinic and has kept it open for months longer than we ever thought it could remain open. For that, I know CEDEJO and the women it serves are very, very grateful. However, the funding we've raised to date only covered up through May of 2014. For the last few months CEDEJO's director and volunteers have been making up the difference and paying for supplies and services out of their own pockets. I can attest to the fact that they do not have the money to continue to do this on their own. But they cannot bear to stop providing critical services to women and girls, especially after all the time they've taken to build up trust with them. CEDEJO has been meeting behind the scenes with potential long-term funding sources (both governmental and international foundations) and have been working very hard to create partnerships which will, hopefully, begin to bring in some long-term funding in late 2015. I plan to share the news about these partnerships as they unfold - there are some exciting possibilities on the horizon! However, the funding through these sources will not be generated until late 2015. CEDEJO and the women and girls of the Lake Chapala community need our help today. Empty Hands Video I discovered the video I'm sharing in this post when I was searching for potential international funding sources for CEDEJO's programs. When I watched it I was moved to tears because it exemplifies so well what I've witnessed Sylvia Flores and CEDEJO volunteers deal with on a daily basis. The film is made in Guatemala but when I shared it with Sylvia and the other volunteers they said, "This is how it is for all of Mexico as well....". And one volunteer said "...it made me realize the true importance of our call. I feel grateful for the place I'm in and for the opportunity to do something. It brought meaning, once again, for the everyday effort and reminded me not to forget the essence of our work...." Please watch the video and consider this: Can each of us now, in CEDEJO's time of need, recognize we're in a place and have an opportunity to do something? Can we support CEDEJO's work and the positive effects it has on the larger community and the world? Please, help today if you can. Give any amount you are able to give. And if you are unable to give money, please share this call with others that can. Your time, energy and support are very much appreciated! TO GIVE TO THE CLINIC: Donate on my Fundraising Page : GoFundMe OR Donate on CEDEJO's Website via PayPal OR deliver donations to the clinic (45-A Ocampo, Ajijic) OR deposit directly in to their bank account (see website for details).

  10. I've posted in the past about the fundraising campaign I started in August 2013 to help keep CEDEJO, an Ajijic-based women’s clinic that serves low-income and indigenous women and girls, open for another year. I've currently raised 58% of my goal which will keep the clinic open through the end of March 2014 but we still need help in raising the additional 42% of funds. PESO FOR PESO MATCH CHALLENGE :: DONATE BEFORE MARCH 8th Our latest match challenge donor visited Ajijic for only a few weeks in 2013. While here, he met Sylvia and witnessed the impact of the CEDEJO Women's clinic upon the community. Impressed and moved by CEDEJO's work, he has offerred to match up to $500 US dollars or 6500 pesos in donations if we can raise that amount in the next four weeks. Our anonymous donor's offer, if met by March 8th, will help us keep the women's clinic open through April 2014. Please help us to secure this time-sensitive match by giving what you can today. Every peso counts! Thank you!

  13. This year, for International Women's Day and in honor of all the women around the world that help to empower others, I decided to volunteer my time to a local women's health clinic. The non-profit clinic I am volunteering with, Centro de Desarrollo Jocotepec, located on Ocampo in Ajijic, Jalisco, Mexico, has provided care to indigenous and low-income women and families in the area for over 30 years. Twice a week the Center’s Director and registered nurse, Sylvia Flores, offers pap smears and breast examinations, as well as family planning counseling, to one of the poorest and most vulnerable barrios in Jalisco through the Tepehua Community Center in Chapala. However, while volunteering I discovered this program's funding (previously provided by a local civic organization that is restricted from funding more than two years of the program) is ending at the end of this month. I've witnessed women of all ages line up outside the clinic's doors to gain access to health services they would otherwise not be able to afford. For many, it's the first time in their lives that they've gained access to gynecological care. I've seen the relief in their faces as nurses responded to their health concerns and I've watched them leave with smiles of gratitude. Because this clinic is critical to maintaining the health of women & families in this community, and because I think it would be a tragedy for it to end, I have started a personal fundraising campaign to help keep the doors of this clinic open for another year. Please visit my fundraising campaign (Go Fund Me :: Save-Health-Clinic), read more about the services the clinic offers, and consider donating whatever you can. Also, please PM me if you know of any civic organizations, religious organizations or groups that provide grants or funding for local health initiatives, or please share this with them. Even if you can't donate, please check out the campaign page and help spread the word through the social sharing prompts. Every little bit helps. Many thanks for your help & support. ♥ **Donations can also be made through the Tepehua Community Center (where the CEDEJO volunteers hold the clinic) by specifying that your donation be earmarked for the Women’s Health Clinic run by Sylvia Flores, or by dropping off donations directly to Sylvia Flores at the Clinic on Ocampo in Ajijic. Whichever way you choose to donate, the funds will go toward keeping the clinic running. Thank you!
