Andean Medical Mission is a not for profit organization set up to help organize and manage ophthalmic medical missions. Every aspect of the mission can be catered for and we accompany and guide as well as translate during the clinics and surgeries.Our network allows us to reach remote communities where access to health services do not exist. Our services are provided free of charge thanks to your support.In May of 2012 we completed our first trip to the Bolivian Amazon. We focused on reducing blindness in the Magdalena and Baures Villages in the Itenez district of Northern Bolivia. This is a harsh environment of extreme heat and swamps and rivers. There has never been an ophthalmology visit to this district before AMM. We have committed to go every year and build on what we were able to achieve.
