Wikipedia and the Free Clinic

Wikipedia (wikiˈpiːdi.ə/ or /ˌwɪkiˈpiːdi.ə/) is a multilingual, web-based, free content encyclopedia project. Wikipedia is written by volunteers from all around the world. The name Wikipedia is a portmanteau of the words wiki(a type of collaborative website) and encyclopedia. Since its creation in 2001, Wikipedia has become a very popular online source for information on almost every topic. Many people are familiar with it especially if you have children in school. We recently discovered that Wikipedia had no definition for a Free Clinic so we wrote one and here is a link to it
