Needs Funding : AMe BOLIVIA – AMe SURGERIES, REHAB, AND MEDICATION

About the Project

In 2012, an assessment team travelled to Bolivia to visit an organization called AMe Bolivia. AMe’s founder, Gheorghe Micoti, who is originally from Romania, has been volunteering in Bolivia for over 10 years now. They are working to fundraise locally and internationally to pay for the surgeries and provide the after care and rehabilitation required. AMe’s purpose is to provide medical treatment, rehabilitation and physiotherapy to marginalized individuals who are unable to afford proper health care.

COVID-19 UPDATE: Despite the pandemic and strong and later flexible quarantine, we keep searching for solutions for the ones who need us; we can’t answer all the applications, many times the situation becomes overwhelming from not being able to help, but the drama of each individual life, the smile of our people, and the support of our friends gives us strength to continue. – Gheorghe
