We just received this short video from Dollie Ambassador Pat Mertz from Chicago.

It is a video showing the Dollies we sent with her way back in 2012 when she was making a humanitarian visit to the Ivory Coast where she was involved in the development of the The Patricia Nau Health Clinic. This community based maternal health clinic was just getting off the ground in 2012, and as of 2016 is completely built and up and running providing “quality medical care for safe births and access to disease treatment and prevention, especially for mothers, newborns, and children under five.”

Pat Mertz will be returning to the Ivory Coast in September 2016, and we will once again be sending Dollies and also Teddy Bears with her.
