PMI recently announced plans to expand its efforts into Burundi. The proceeds from the 2013 Needtobreathe Classic were used to construct a medical clinic in El Viejo, Nicaragua, which was dedicated in January 2014. This year’s tournament proceeds will benefit another East African clinic in Uganda, with work slated to begin in January 2015.
