Here is a little bit of how it all works:
AMMIGO is constantly working to acquire and provide the supplies and equipment which allow us to to bring basic medical and surgical care to the people of Central America. One surgical mission trip to Honduras can cost in excess of $25,000, and every contribution makes a huge difference.
On our surgical missions to small villages in Honduras, we rely on donations for all the surgical supplies that we use during a week’s stay. Dressings, instruments, drapes and gowns are all transported by our volunteers and sterilized on-site. IV supplies and fluids are also donated and transported on each trip.
In addition, funds raised by AMMIGO go toward a variety of needs: medications and anesthesia supplies essential to perform the surgical procedures; hospital reimbursements that are incurred during our visits, like electricity and water; the costs of travel for our volunteer residents and students, including airfare and accommodations; and the promotion of our services to the villages that we serve. These are our basic needs, those critical to our fundamental service.
So there it is in a nutshell, or as they say in Honduras: En una cáscara de nuez!
Thank you and please contact us with any questions.
