When others are running out... HOPE is rushing in.
Volunteer surgeons, anesthesiologists, and nurses procure their own medical supplies, as well as accommodate their own airfare and volunteer their time to provide life-saving surgery. Each volunteer surgical team travels approximately ten days and accomplishes between 25 and 45 surgeries and can evaluate hundreds to be referred for other medical treatments.
Each year, nearly 600 individuals, organizations, and corporations donate new or gently used medical supplies and medical equipment that Esperança delivers to Nicaragua to support the severely resource-challenged communities where we send our volunteer surgical teams. These supplies and equipment are essential to ensure that Esperança’s partnering hospitals and clinics are equipped throughout the year with tools to transform lives.
