    The Centro Médico Patient Fund!

    Centro Médico’s mission is to help members of our communities lead healthy lives. As part of this commitment, we arrange and fund extensive and long-term treatment, including pace maker insertions, cancer treatment, dialysis, joint replacements, HIV therapy and more. As the needs of our patients grow, we need your help to continue helping them. Please make future care possible by adopting a patient through our patient fund. Learn the stories of individual patients and then contribute to the care of a specific patient.

    Centro Medico Humberto Parra

    Centro Medico Humberto Parra strives to improve the health and well-being of poor rural Bolivian communities.

    Centro Medico provides free primary healthcare, medication, health education and other health services to people who would otherwise not be able to afford them. The clinic works in partnership with the surrounding communities to enable them to lead healthy lives. Centro Medico is primarily staffed by volunteer American and Bolivian physicians and is entirely funded by private donations from Bolivia and the United States.
