A great day for Children's Well-Being
Foundation! We partnered with ACAI, a
non-profit that supports refugees in Costa
Rica, on March 25th for an eye clinic that
treated 245 patients and provided glasses
for 120. CWB provides these kinds of
specialty clinics throughout the year and they
are a great way to serve the community.
Children's Well-Being Foundation (formerly Children Without Borders) is a non-profit organization that provides life saving medical care to children and preventative health education for families in under-served countries.
Children's Well-Being is committed to providing the best possible free health care to children and families in underserved areas of the world. We aim to treat, educate, and empower patients to live full, healthy lives.
Children’s Well-Being Foundation operates three clinics in Costa Rica to combat the shortage of health care provided by the government. We have strategically placed our urban clinic in the barrio of Los Anonos in San Jose serving over 8 surrounding precarrios (neighborhoods). These tightly built 500 square foot tin homes typically house two or more generations of families with no access to the government health clinics.
Our rural clinic is located in the Northwest region of Guanacaste. Through a local partnership with Peninsula Papagayo and Crescendio Juntos, Children's Well-Being has brought care to an area that relied on a government clinic that was only open one day a month. Our Guanacaste clinic is open 5 days a week and provides not only primary care for children, but also pre-natal care for expectant mothers, counseling services and dental care.
The third and most recent clinic, The Casa Club, is located in the Leon XIII area of San Jose. The Casa Club targets the support and health care of at-risk youth in the area.
