That’s one big check!

While we are most well known for our international health work, we also do some amazing prevention and health education work in our local community. As we previously talked about in our blog, our local program’s excellence was recognized by Catholic Healthcare West when we received a grant for $50,000 for two years to support our nutrition and healthy living program Salud con Sabor Latino, or Health with a Latin Twist. We are grateful that our partners at Catholic Healthcare West have chosen to invest in us, and believe as we do that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.

Even though they didn’t spell our name correctly, the bank still cashed the check. Hooray!
