Millennium Fellowship Project: Jóvenes Altruistas Pensando en México
We provide medical service to vulnerable communities and small ejidos who don't have easy access to medical services, we have around a 100 volunteers per brigade and the impact we have is that in less than 24 hours we provide medical service from 400 to 1000 persons. Not only medical services, we also bring law consultancy and educative programs. We partner with different medical organizations, which they suppport us with the necessary medical stuff for every patient.
