Join Somos Amigos as we celebrate our upcoming 20th anniversary, and in doing so, help us inaugurate our fourth trip each calendar year. From our humble beginnings in 1997, Somos Amigos has grown over the years to become a model for the delivery of quality medical and dental care in a remote hillside community in the Dominican Republic. Hundreds of volunteers have cared for thousands of patients, some of whom are alive today primarily because of the intervention of our volunteers.
Somos Amigos started with just one trip per year. After several years of growing our volunteer base and improving our facilities, we added a second trip. Within a few more years, in response to the mounting need, we added a third. With the need for basic healthcare even more dire, we know now it’s time to grow again, by adding a fourth trip to meet the needs of our patients four times a year.
But that’s not all. In addition to increasing the frequency of our trips, Somos Amigos will staff our clinic with a local provider on a regular basis between our visits. This will allow us to monitor patients between our trips and also to identify patients who have special needs before our groups arrive and get them the care they deserve.
Our Chicago event kicks off our efforts to make our growth possible. Somos Amigos is a small, grass-roots organization. We are proud of what we have accomplished with a lean budget through the years but it is time to be bold. The 4th trip is more than a need—it’s a necessity. Please join us for conversation and refreshments. Our goal for the event is to raise $50,000. Thank you for your support.
