Visit Containers to Clinics (C2C)

The Containers to Clinics (C2C) project is a non-profit, charitable initiative that seeks to improve maternal, child and community healthcare services to underserved rural and peri-urban communities in Central America by providing access to basic services through a clinic model. C2C is committed to building integrated, sustainable rural health systems through the use of recycled, retrofitted shipping containers which employ appropriate technologies and local staffing. C2C’s intervention is designed to identify and grow local capacity by integratng microfinance and social franchising principles into service delivery. The model seeks to establish and replicate best practice through standardized design and operation protocols.

• Establishing clinics through community-led, participatory processes which respond to community needs and which leverage existing local-level resources and assets;

• Empowering rural and peri-urban communities through the use of innovative financing models, appropriate technologies, local training, and mentoring;

• Contributing to the field of international rural health solutions by integrating data-collection and epidemiology research into the C2C model;

• Integrating prevention programming into all aspects of clinic operations

Customer's Comments:
"You are wonderful, we like you a lot and want to work with you two days per week."
Steve Hauck, Dover, MA.

Everything looked wonderful, always!
Thank you all so much — you’re a godsend.

Maggie, Holliston, MA.

The cleaners who came last week were wonderful. They were extremely professional cleaners and did a great job. Things were crazy here since we had just returned from the hospital after my husband injured himself. They were very patient with our crazy situation. It has been a complicated couple of weeks.

Muldoon, Natick, MA

I wanted to write again, this time to say THANKS! The house was cleaned yesterday and it looks fantastic!

Jackman, Norton MA.

Ana have been working for me several years. I have had people clean my home for over 30 years and they are the best.
Susan Setta, Natick, MA

She and her assistant did a very thorough job on my mother-in-law’s home (which had not had a deep cleaning in probably years). They were very friendly and professional. They moved everything to clean and then put everything back.
Wonderful – highly recommend.

Sharon K. Shewsbury, MA.

Anna and her helper are both very pleasant and thorough. Anna understood exactly what I wanted done and urged me to check everything out when she was done. She speaks English and brings all her own materials.

Elaine, Belmont, MA.

"If you need something done that does not fall within the realm of housecleaning, we can help you with that too. We are all about servicing you and making your life easier, after all that is what we are here for."
