Why does Solidarity Bridge serve Bolivia and Paraguay?
As residents of the poorest countries in Latin America, a stunning percentage of the people of Bolivia and Paraguay struggle with little or no access to medical resources. Disease, deformities, and debilitating accidents that are often uncommon or cured at birth in the United States are rampant among the people of Bolivia and Paraguay.
For many, our medical assistance provides the only chance for a productive life - or even survival. Our medical programs have grown out of partnerships between U.S. and Latin American medical personnel who are committed to serving the poor while providing the necessary training and equipment to promote lasting change in Latin American medical communities.
