NEW Clean Water Wells in Nicaragua!

We are pleased to announce that we have just finished the drilling and installation of 2 clean deep water wells in Nicaragua.

Our dear friend and 19 year PHFM team member, Stanford Bendlis, is fighting a losing battle against pancreatic cancer.

Do you know you know what he has done?

If you know Stanford, you know him to be a phenomenal builder and an energetic, high-sprited, and thoughtful 50 year old man from Bluefields, Nicaragua.

Dear PHFM Community,

Pain and suffering are familiar companions among the remote people living along Nicaragua's Rio Grande de Matagalpa. And without the medical services most of us take for granted, they often just suffer in silence.

But recently, community members suffering from dental pain and even infection found relief and healing in their newly constructed village clinic, which hosted a dental team of six from the UK several weeks ago. The team treated 188 patients, many of whom had never received dental care before, and offered the first medical intervention of the new facility, which will celebrate its official grand opening in March.
