What We Do
Mayflower Medical Outreach supports a wide variety of programs in Nicaragua. Each year a team of otolaryngologists and nurses travel to the mountain town of Jinotega to see patients and perform surgeries.
There are three annual mission trips in which audiologists from across the United States participate. Patients from Jinotega and the surrounding communities are seen in tandem with the MMO Otolaryngologists and Dr. Ernesto Moreno, a Nicaraguan Otolaryngologist who holds a permanent full-time position at the hospital and ENT clinic.
Through the work of the MMO medical and audiology teams along with various Nicaraguan organizations, it we became aware that there were deaf children in rural areas that were not getting access to education.
