Our tallies of patients directly served fall far short of revealing our true impact. The focus of each Solidarity Bridge program on empowering Bolivian and Paraguayan professionals and institutions allows our impact to multiply through the innumerable additional patients who benefit from the upgraded skills of our partner physicians and equipment and supplies in our partner hospitals. Solidarity Bridge chooses each of our partners based not only on their skill sets and capacities, but also on their shared drive to use those resources and gifts in solidarity with the poor. We, in turn, are impacted by their selfless commitment and vocation.

We are proud to share below the stories of just one partner surgeon chosen from each of our programs. Select any partner name to read more.
