Concert benefits medical care by Bucks providers in Nicaragua

A free concert benefiting Healthy Neighbors International will be held at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, April 21, at St. Andrew’s United Methodist Church, 999 York Road, Warminster.

The nonprofit group Healthy Neighbors International makes an annual trip to Nicaragua to provide medical care and also tries to support the health needs of villagers after the group departs.

Doylestown Hospital physicians, nurse practitioners, nurses, technicians and family members have been making the week-long medical mission trip to Nicaragua, one of the poorest countries in Latin America, for several years. Many villagers in Nicaragua do not have access to health-care services.

Using Healthy Neighbors International as a lever, the group is building partnerships with medical and nursing schools and other health providers in Nicaragua to provide follow-up care after the team leaves, and to coordinate care and telephone consults throughout the year.

The benefit concert will feature cello instrumental selections and vocal presentations by the St. Andrew’s Senior Choir, with accompaniment by Judie Stebner under the direction of Ruth Steele.

All are welcome at the concert. A free dessert reception will follow.

The first 64 people who donate $50 or more will be invited to a pre-concert dinner at 6 p.m. at St. Andrews. To reserve a place at the dinner, contact Colleen Rodebaugh at 215-675-3748. Dinner reservations must be received by April 14.
