We Believe in Hope.

We invest in people.

Esperança (es‧pe‧ran‧sah), the Portuguese word for hope, resonates in everything we do.

 We are more than doctors, donors, volunteers. We are activists, community members, and global citizens. We are connected to our work because we are there, on the ground, letting the people tell us what they need.

Our mission is to improve health and provide hope for families in the poorest communities of the world through sustainable disease prevention, education, and treatment.

We envision a world where communities across the globe have the tools, training, and support to achieve optimal health through access to clean water, secure housing, nutritious food, and disease prevention and treatment.
