Our 100% volunteer teams are pilots, physicians, dentists, nurses, technicians, translators, and therapists who fly to El Fuerte Mexico to work in our two well-equipped medical clinics for a day and a half. Our flights are by small private planes from various locations in Arizona, Nevada and California. Volunteers contribute to the cost of the airplane's fuel and support their own expenses, usually less than $75-100 for the whole weekend.
A community Team visits rural indigenous villages to diagnose and treat people who otherwise would not receive care. Since local water is a source of disease, and the only solution is low-cost but effective filtration at the village level, this project has become one of the major goals over the next year.
