Unfortunately, the local organization that has provided financial support for the clinic over the last two years is unable to continue funding due to restrictions beyond their or CEDEJO's control. Unless another funding source becomes available, CEDEJO will have to close the clinic at the end of August 2013.
The clinic’s work is too important to give up on. After two years, regular counseling and exams have helped the community to make great strides forward in relation to women’s health and empowerment.
"I felt heartbroken that the clinic might be forced to close its doors. It did not seem just that women who were my neighbors might be denied something that I had been privileged to receive throughout my lifetime. I felt I needed to do more. It was then that I decided to start a fundraising campaign to attempt to raise the money needed to keep the doors of the clinic open for another year."
