Somos Amigos Medical Missions® is neither a religious nor political organization. We are small, but we have a large mission. We are grass-roots and humble, but we think big. We are a group of friends, colleagues, professionals and students, young and not-so-young who are brought together by one goal: to connect with those who struggle, to help them and to empower them, and to improve their lives through quality medical and dental care. We believe we have an obligation to reach out and to try to make a difference in our world.
Somos Amigos® provides primary care to thousands of patients. But we believe that we bring our patients more than medicines and tooth fillings and vitamins—we are bringing hope. The relationships we have with those we serve are fundamental to our identity. We have connected with people, with communities, in a real and lasting way. On a wall near our pharmacy, a volunteer left a sign that reads, “If you have come expecting to heal the sick, you will be surprised, for the sick will heal you.” Beautiful connections are made on that Naranjito hillside, little miracles of healing. Lives are being changed.
