To provide medical and wellness services to benefit people with limited resources. NWI collaborates with bi-national health care providers, through a well-organized and professional infrastructure.
NWI operates two health and wellness clinics in Naco, Sonora. In pre/post COVID times, clinics aer full of activity - Zumba exercise, diabetes/blood pressure screenings, health education and cooking classes, seniors activities, and escuelita classes. Medical equipment loans are also utilized. Together, the clinics normally average 11,000 visits each year. In February 2020, COVID modification or suspension of in-person health education, programs for the elderly, escuelitas, physical therapy was required. By summer, resumption of services and medical equipment loans began. Health education classes were re-designed for on-line delivery, and participation levels incresed substantially.
NWI family and community gardens are vitally important as extreme poverty, hunger, and malnutrition intensified during COVID. Family and community gardens were highly successful, producing hundreds of kilos of tomatoes and zucchinis pepper varietals, bushels of sweet corn, broccoli, cauliflower, sweet onions, melons...19 crop varieties in all, also supplying healthy outdoor exercise. With no jobs and no income, many of Nacos poorest families often could not buy food anywhere for months. The gardens frequently became lifesavers, providing the only source of healthy food.
