Esperança in Ecuador
Esperança begun work in Ecuador with our partner NGO, Benemérita Sociedad Protectora de la Infancia (BSPI), in 2019 when they reached out requesting Esperança's volunteer surgical teams. BSPI is broken into three services categories: free medical services including missions from the U.S., housing for victims of child abuse, and a school to serve the community as well as those children living onsite. In Spring of 2019, Esperança began sending volunteer surgical teams to the Hospital León Becerra in Guayaquil, Ecuador to serve the country's most vulnerable. This unique opportunity to partner directly with a hospital has allowed Esperança to collaborate with local physicians much more intimately than before.
