Saving & Changing Lives
Give now and change lives
The people whose lives are improved or saved through community health and medical education and intervention are owed to your generosity and charitable contributions.
Our mission is to go to the far away, hard to reach areas, where others don’t go and show God’s love through acts of kindness, free medical services and holistic action to the least of these, those affected by extreme generational poverty. Our hope is to use medical care to open the door in communities which will help transform them with a “ripple effect,” growing a legacy of health, hope and faith throughout Latin America!

Fredy was brought into our clinic by his mom. She explained to us that he had been suffering from severe pain in his right lower back and waist area for the last two years. The pain was so severe that he hasn’t been able to do anything strenuous including playing football with his friends.
Charlene examined him and was very concerned. She told his mom that he needed to go to the hospital, that it might be a serious condition. The mom hung her head and said that she had no money to take him there, let alone, pay for the medicine or procedure. We comforted her and said we would take care of it.
After a taxi ride to the nearest town and some lab work, it was determined that he had an infection in his gut and after two weeks of a triple antibiotic cocktail, Freddy was cured!
On the first day we opened the Colfax clinic, a mom came in and told us that her son had fallen off a two-story cliff the day before and thought his leg was broken. We quickly went to her house to see the boy. That is when we met Rafiel. He was pretty beat up. The witch doctor had already been by, did his juju and said it would be fine. We could tell he was definitely wrong.
Rafi’s parents allowed us to take him in to town for an x-ray, just to be sure, and our suspicions were correct. He had broken the bottom of his femur right in the growth plate. If this wasn’t fixed he would probably be crippled for life. We shared all we have found with his parents and they allowed us to take him to the hospital for a cast to be put on.
Eight grueling weeks and one birthday later, Rafi got his cast removed with a completely healed leg and it running around now like all six year old’s should. Praise the Lord!
This was a true work of God. Our original mobile clinic day was postponed, and Helen wasn’t even part of the community. She was with her aunt buying something from the tienda and heard there was a free clinic near by. They quickly came to have Helen checked out. She has a large growth on her arm that was painful. It seemed vascular so we needed to have it checked out.
After the clinic, we picked them up and took them for an ultrasound and confirmed it was going to need surgery. The family was so thankful that we would care to take the time to find out what it was because all the clinics and hospitals they had visited before just said it was an infection and gave her amoxicillin which didn’t work.
Surgery was scheduled and performed. PTL, it was a cancer free tumor! Now Helen is healthy and living life pain and lump free thanks to all who gave to make it happen.
