One of my co-workers, Maria, is going to Nicaragua in two weeks to serve as a translator for Hope Clinic International. According to Maria, “The purpose of the trip is to provide medical and surgical help to children that would otherwise not receive medical attention. The medical team cares for between 80 and 100 children per day, conducting walk-in pediatric clinics in partnership with the Saint Vincent DePaul Society in Nicaragua.” Very cool.
In order to raise money for her trip, Maria is conducting a bake sale all week at my office. To help out, tonight I made the jalapeño cheddar scones from Smitten Kitchen. I already tasted one, and it was pretty good. Hope everyone at the office likes them!
p.s. If any readers out there are interested in making a donation towards Maria’s trip (even a few dollars would help!), leave me a comment and I’ll get in contact with you about how. Thanks!
