About the Cause

The San Diego bridge community has supported Ray Sachs’ medical missions with Esperança for 8 years. Ray’s surgical teams transform the lives of children with club feet, displaced hips, and much more—allowing them to grow up to be productive, happy members of society. Ray’s teams donate their labor AND travel, and money from bridge players buys equipment and supplies which allows Ray’s team to perform operations that cost $30,000-$40,000 in the U.S. for an average of $120 in places like Bolivia, Ecuador, Nicaragua, and Peru.
