Beginnings in India

December 2015 saw an initial global outreach trip including a needs assessment in India. Power of a Nickel was approached by a group of interested people from India including physicians, other healthcare professionals, and businesspersons. After several meetings, a decision was made to send a global outreach team to the area in which a clinic was felt to be needed. 

Fast forward to 2019. After many discussions about security as well as determining the greatest need, we are moving forward working with an organization whose purpose is to embrace children of trafficked mothers.  Hopefully in 2020 everything will be in place for an outreach trip to help in this incredible mission. Please send us an email if you are interested in this project.  

The Power of a Nickel continues its mission of serving the underserved with medical care, education, and relationship building.
