Our Bolivian counterpart, Puente de Solidaridad, opened its doors in 2005 to locally manage our programs and day-to-day operations. Headquartered in Cochabamba with a second office in Santa Cruz, Puente de Solidaridad's role is critical for the continuous nurturing of our relationships with partner hospitals and doctors.

Puente de Solidaridad employs social workers responsible for screening our surgical patients for financial eligibility and for overseeing follow-up care for those who require it, including all pacemaker implant recipients. Puente de Solidaridad also manages the warehouses that catalog, store, and distribute in-kind donations ranging from high-value surgical instrument trays to gauze and suture supplies for both mission trips and year-round activities.
