|Description:||The Midwest Winefest is celebrating 23 years in 2018! Funds raised from Midwest Winefest have totaled more than $4.6 million dollars which directly go to support the Guadalupe Health Foundation and in turn are used to support their primary beneficiary, Guadalupe Clinic.
Grants from Guadalupe Health Foundation make it possible for Guadalupe Clinic to provide necessary medical treatment and services to those most in need in the Wichita community. The Foundation is key to the long-term success and growth of Guadalupe Clinic and the services they provide to the working poor and underserved living among us.
uadalupe Clinic is a donation-based safety-net clinic that has been providing health care to residents of Wichita and surrounding areas since 1985. Many of the patients treated are working but cannot afford other health care options. Guadalupe Clinic provides health care services for a requested $5 donation; however, no one is ever turned away due to an inability to donate.
Guadalupe Clinic is a place where anyone who is uninsured and underserved medically can receive quality healthcare from volunteer medical staff who will treated them with care and respect. It takes the contribution of many volunteers both medical and administrative to support the Clinic’s mission to provide access to necessary health care for those in need, work for social justice in health care, and call upon the entire Church and other people of goodwill to join in these efforts.
Last year the Clinic served over 950 new patients and provided more than 8,000 patient visits made possible by 300+ medical volunteers giving an estimated 7,400 hours of their time. Your support makes this possible! Your next volunteer contribution will provide the resources that facilitate the Clinic’s continued service to people who may have no other access to healthcare.
