Mission Fundación Manos Juntas is a nonprofit charitable 501(c)(3) organization which represents what is possible when people join hands and work together for a common purpose of breaking the cycle of poverty.
Fundación Manos Juntas is an initiative of Dr. Boyd Shook and his daughter Kathy McCallie. Their desire to help the poor and the underprivileged, motivated them to join efforts in solidarity to the disadvantaged with the creation of Manos Juntas. Fundación Manos Juntas started in 1995 and became officially incorporated in 1997.

Dr. Boyd Shook's awareness and concern for the large number of uninsured population and the high cost of health in the United States; as well as the desire to help the underprivileged, and his passion for Internal Medicine with more than 50 years of experience motivated him to start the non-profit organization Manos Juntas.

Kathy McCallie, whose perseverant dedication to help the poor and as a Ministry of the Church Open Arms, proposed to her father to join hands to create Manos Juntas.

Dr. Shook and Kathy participated for the first time in a Medical Mission Trip to Nicaragua with the Community of Hope Church group in 1994. They visited remote rural communities where they saw extreme levels of poverty, the lack of basic human needs such as clean water, nutrition, health care, clothing, and shelter. It was hard to believe that a vast majority of the Nicaraguan population struggle to survive on little more than US$1 per day.

After they returned to the United States, their experiences in Nicaragua inspired them to continue medical work within their own community in Oklahoma City. The poverty levels between the places are not comparable, but the need for accessible health care among the uninsured, the unemployed, and the undocumented immigrants was growing. In 1995, they opened the doors of a free medical clinic in the basement of the Epworth Methodist Church.

During the medical mission trips to Nicaragua, Dr. Shook and Kathy also realized that many children are faced with high risk of educational underachievement. Poverty often drastically affects children's success in school. Their lack of health care ultimately results in many absences from the academic year. They are likely to suffer from hunger, fatigue and many illnesses. Moreover, many of them are forced to work in order to bring home a bite to eat. All of these circumstances restrict the students' concentration and leads to students dropping out of school. In response to this need, the Manos Juntas Scholarship Program was created.

Impact  Our programs include but are not limited to the following:
  1. Operation of a Medical Clinic in Oklahoma City which provides health care and medications at no cost to the needy. Through the Medical Clinic, we provide access to health care to all who are in need of service. We encourage preventive, quality health care services through routine check-ups, laboratory testing, medication refills and educational materials. We also arrange specialty referrals when needed. We provide care to 120-200 patients every Saturday. The patients range in age from infants to adults well into their 80's. Some are unemployed, some do not have insurance, some are homeless, but they all need medical care which we provide at no cost to those in need. In addition to the Saturday clinic, Manos Juntas also offers a Diabetes Education Class on Mondays at 6:00 P.M. Here our diabetic patients are taught to properly manage their glucose levels, take their medications, use insulin injections and maintain high quality of life despite the fact that they have a chronic disease.
  2. Medical Mission Trips to Clinics in Nicaragua which provide health care services and medications at no cost to the needy. Since 1994, Manos Juntas has been organizing medical and construction mission trips in Nicaragua one to two times a year. The purpose of the Manos Juntas mission trips is to serve the poor and disadvantaged by providing medical assistance in the communities that have little or no access to medical care. 
  3. Develop and sponsor education for students from Nicaragua in order to break the cycle of poverty through education. Since 1996, we have been recruiting disadvantaged high-school or university students every semester. We generally look for enrolled students who have clear goals about their careers, have the desire to study and have good grades, but can't afford to continue when they are faced with tuition, books, and transportation costs. We provide funding for 20-30 students each year. We want to enable students to gain knowledge so they will have the skills necessary to make a living and contribute in diversifying Nicaragua's economy.
  1. We hope to expand our Monday night Diabetes Education Classes to include cooking classes, nutritional education and disease prevention. We also hope to develop a formal class curriculum that will allow us to better monitor our patients’ level of understanding and allow the patients to see their own progressive improvement and feel pride in their accomplishments.

Description We take a medical trip every summer to Nicaragua to aid the people of the country. The approach of the Manos Juntas mission trips is to serve the poor and disadvantaged by providing medical assistance in those communities that have little or no access to medical care. We work to support rural poor communities of Nicaragua by building medical clinics and/ or by providing medical assistance through a mobile clinic.
Population Served Latin America & the Caribbean Poor,Economically Disadvantaged,Indigent At-Risk Populations
Description During one of our medical mission trips to Nicaragua, we realized that many young people are faced with a seemingly impossible task of completion of their school because of inability to pay even the basic costs of education. The Manos Juntas Scholarship Program consists of a monthly monetary help for Nicaraguan high school or university students in need. The idea is to provide them a moderate amount of money so they can have the choice to spend it based on their specific needs either to pay for transportation, books, school supplies or food. The students are carefully selected based on their economic situation, academic performance, and strong desire to improve their lives.
Population Served Latin America & the Caribbean Poor,Economically Disadvantaged,Indigent Adolescents Only (13-19 years)
Examples of Program SuccessHelpSpecific examples of changes in behaviors or testimonies of changes that demonstrate program success. From 1996 to 2007, Fundación Manos Juntas worked with FUNDECI (Nicaraguan Foundation for the Community Development). Both foundations joined efforts and worked together in the recruitment of needy students and in the administration and management of the Scholarship Program. From 2008 to present, Manos Juntas has been working with faculty members from UNAN-Managua (National Autonomous University of Nicaragua - Managua) and UNI (National University of Engineering) to recruit students. Every year Manos Juntas has approximately 20-30 scholarship students. Now, many of our students have graduated and are working. Education has been a great investment to improve the life of these kids.
Description Our current Diabetes Education and Management program teaches our patients how to check their blood glucose daily, how to manage their insulin, and how to make lifestyle changes involving food and activities.
