Traveling RASKAL goes on mission to Nicaragua

Jul 16, 2015

Glenda-Salmon_Nicaragua-trip_Travelin-RASKAL_22_story.jpgOn June 20 the Chinese RASKAL left with Mountain Home Clinic Coordinator Glenda Salmon on a mission to Leon, Nicaragua, a small town about two hours from the capital city of Manaugua.  (The RASKAL is the mascot of our employee recognition program and the "traveling RASKALs" promote nominations of employees outside of your office or renal center).

Salmon visited the Christian Community Church where a conference was held for 54 pastors and their wives.  Through the generosity of RVM, the pastors received an RVM-logoed dress shirt and their wives received a manicure set.  Salmon also passed out RVM notepads, pens, and t-shirts to the appreciative Nicaraguans.

RASKAL and Salmon toured the Public Hospital where patient care, food, IVs, prescriptions, and even bed sheets are provided by the family instead of the hospital. RASKAL and Salmon also went to a wellness clinic in the remote area of El Paresio.  The clinic weighed and checked the blood pressure of the people living in this settlement.  Each child was given a toothbrush, toothpaste, and vitamins.   The adults were given vitamins and glasses that had been donated to help those with vision problems. 

Glenda-Salmon_Nicaragua-trip_Travelin-RASKAL_06_story.jpgRASKAL and Salmon visited Vacation Bible School programs at two churches in Leon where the mission group sang songs, made friendship bracelets, taught a Bible story, and played games with the children. 

They also helped at an orphanage where they passed out baseball shirts and caps, painted works of art, planted okra, and played games with the children.  The RVM balloons were a big hit with the kids and provided hours of fun.  One child named Octavio was thrilled when a balloon popped!  9 year-old Griffin especially loved the "Drop It Like It’s Hot" t-shirt!

Salmon appreciates RVM donating all the logoed items that they passed out to their new friends in Nicaragua.  If you have a chance to visit, you may run into a bus driver wearing a “Peace - Love - Kidney” t-shirt!
