Every February we take a group of volunteers to provide completely free surgeries of different types to impoverished Ecuadorian children.


The mission dates for 2021 are tentatively set to:

Friday Feb 19 - Saturday Feb 27 2021

Please bear in mind, this has certainly been a unique year in the face of the unprecedented global pandemic. Month by month the world situation has been changing, so we too must be ready for sudden changes. We are currently planning on holding the mission, but given that the United States AND Ecuador have been especially hit hard with the COVID virus, we are proceeding with cautious optimism but will have a low threshold to cancel the mission if it will be unsafe for our volunteers or our patients.

Although many people express an interest in this trip, it is primarily a surgical medical trip caring for mostly children with surgical and rehab needs. Preference is given to experienced medical professionals who can contribute to the mission although we are always in need of pediatric recovery nursing help. Please review the information on the website and contact us to express interest.  

If you are filling out a first time application, you will need to email and tell us about yourself as well as how you would be able to contribute to our mission. If you only submit an application without an introductory email, you may not be contacted back.
