Vision:We aim to improve the healthcare of the under-served, both locally and internationally, by sending medical, dental, and general volunteers, as well as students at various levels in their training, to serve at our hospital in Bolivia and in other countries, such as Haiti. Our goal is to use medicine as a vehicle into the hearts of people, to demonstrate Christ’s love by showing the value of each person we care for.
Describe the types of ministry opportunities your agency will offer to Urbana 12 participants:We offer trips to serve at two different sites: -Bolivia: Our hospital in Bolivia is currently the primary site where we send volunteers, both medical and non-medical. Hospitals of Hope has sent over 2000 volunteers to Bolivia, who assist the Bolivian staff in caring for patients, as well as doing community medical outreach. Volunteers in Bolivia stay in our guesthouse, located just behind our hospital. We can accommodate groups or individuals, and we take volunteers year-round. -Haiti: We occasionally take 1-week trips to Haiti to serve with Global Vision Citadelle Ministries (www.gvcm.org), doing outpatient clinics and working in orphanages.
