Stepping onto the plane for her first trip to Nicaragua Windy had no idea what lives she would help change. Nicaragua was new, different and in need. She was attending a serving trip with a group from her church. Once people learned Windy was a pediatric physician, families started bringing their children to her for her assistance.
Experiencing the need first-hand Windy learned the need of families to provide proper nutrition to their children. Since she was not able to leave all the children starving, Windy sought out a solution – a Nicaraguan medical director to oversee communities, evaluating medical needs and outcomes.
What began as a simple vision has expanded now to a nourishing lives program in more than 200 communities in Nicaragua including medical evaluations, nutritional assistance, community nurses, medical intervention and the nourishing of 20,000 children.
