Giving Back, Reluctantly (Nick Alcock in Nicaragua) - Lawyers

In 2012, Nick Alcock of Alcock & Associates, P.C. journeyed to Nicaragua with an Esperança surgical team. His life was changed forever.

Since that trip 9 years ago, he has transformed the lives of thousands in Latin America by supporting Esperança's surgical trips and community development projects, which is why we are proud to share that Nick is a Gift Match presenter at Esperança's 11th Annual Hope Breakfast on September 23rd! #HB2021

In the words of Nick himself, "The next time a friend or colleague invites you to a fundraiser, go with an open mind. There are so many wonderful and deserving nonprofits in Arizona, like Esperança, who need our support and donations."

A $1,000 repayable loan for initiatives like animal husbandry or land ownership can transform an entire community..."It is important to me as a beneficiary that through my results I can continue to support other low-income families in my community.

The Importance of Reducing Medical Supply Waste - Esperança

Did you know? All countries around the world create roughly 1 pound of medical waste per hospital bed per day! Many communities throw brand new supplies away while others are left without. Esperança is working to combat this inequity through our medical supply program. Read more: https://bit.ly/3D2fM59

Medical supply waste is at an all time high in first world countries, while other countries are in need. Learn how health equity can be achieved here.

4 Reasons A Taliban Takeover In Afghanistan Matters To The World

Esperança has always been an advocate and supporter of those impacted by man-made and natural injustices around the world. It is our hope that all those affected by the volatile situation in Afghanistan will receive compassion and care by so many of our fellow NGOs providing support in the area. To learn more & get involved, follow the International Rescue Committee.

https://n.pr/3xWOMAi

The prospect of the Taliban once again in control of Afghanistan has many worried about a return to a harsh brand of Islamic justice seen during the five years the group was previously in power.
