Dr. Jimenez and his team are working hard to develop an international hospital in San Felipe. The new facility will provide a much needed maternity ward so that local mothers will not have to travel an hour and a half to Mexicali to give birth, greatly reducing the risk for mother and newborn when complications arise during delivery.
The hospital will also provide a trauma center which will allow commercial airlines to fly in and out of San Felipe.

Our current fundraiser is selling tickets for a chance to win this beautiful custom Margarita Chair. San Felipe is in desperate need of a fully functioning hospital and trauma center. 100% of the ticket sales will go to Dr. Israel Jimenez for Hospital International San Felipe. The drawing will be on September 26th.
Since San Felipe has been on lockdown we haven’t had the tourism that would normally support the local residents. We decided to have a PHEEDING PHRENZY, providing much needed food to the many poor local families who would normally make their living selling food and crafts to the tourists.
We collected donations and bought truckloads of local grown fresh produce, a local resident also donated 100 lbs of rice and beans. We then assembled over 100 packages of food that would each feed a family of four for about a week. These were distributed to the families of restaurant workers and those known to be suffering from the lack of tourism. Attached are some photos of the happy recipients. It was a very bonding and rewarding project for our club and our community.
