Solidarity Bridge sends approximately five medical mission teams to Bolivia each year, with anywhere from five to thirty missioners taking part in each experience. Most hail from the Chicago area, although we’ve had an increasing number of participants from across the United States. Our teams include surgeons, anesthesiologists, surgical technicians, nurses, dentists, medical specialists, general practitioners, interpreters, chaplains, photographers, videographers, bloggers, and helpers.

Our missioners are diverse individuals. While many are Catholic, others represent a variety of faith traditions or no faith tradition. In addition, while some speak Spanish, others do not. All, however, share a desire to serve humanity and a willingness to work as a team.
