Providing Medical and Surgical Care to South Americans with Limited Resources



For the past 20 years Amigos de Salud has been providing free medical care to some of South America’s most needy people. Each year a multi-specialty medical team visits a Latin American country, treating thousands of patients with a broad range of ailments. For many patients this is the only medical treatment they will receive.

All members of the medical team are volunteers who donate their time and pay for their own airfare, expenses and some equipment. “This is grass-roots medical care,” explains Dr. Nick Morrison, co-founder of Amigos de Salud with his wife Terri. “As medical professionals, we can give back in time and talent to individuals who desperately need our care.”
