Challenge

In Venezuela, the national healthcare system has failed! Most of the doctors and nurses have left the country due to political unrest and skyrocketing inflation. Hospitals are dilapidated and run down with frequent power outages, contaminated drinking water and unsanitary conditions. Sick children, orphans, expectant mothers, infants, and seniors are receiving deficient medical care and are suffering from malnutrition resulting in life threatening conditions and possible death.

Solution

Our medical clinic provides free medical care and medicine to children from impoverished families, orphans, expectant mothers and seniors. SAI medical clinic provides the following services: physical examinations, EKG assessment, gynecology services, obstetrics, ultrasounds, newborn wellness monthly examinations, nutrition counseling, and monthly wellness examinations for expectant mothers. We also provide vitamins for expectant mothers, medications, and baby formula for infants.

Long-Term Impact

SAI is providing life saving, continual medical care for infants, children, orphans, expectant mothers, and seniors! We are providing free medical care to sick impoverished patients, preventative care, diagnostic care and medication. We will be expanding number of patients seen and increasing number of services provided to patients. SAI is saving lives through early diagnosis and treatment. SAI is impacting the health of this generation and future generations to come in Venezuela.
