This project will be carried out in cooperation with a non-profit organization that brings together different professionals, to contribute to change by small solidarity actions. They help the most vulnerable communities by carrying out medical missions, attending the needs of children between the ages of 0 and 12 and the elderly. In addition, they provide training and support in different projects to teenage mothers, single mums and mothers who are heads of families. They also support projects aimed at this continuous improvement in the quality of our habitat.

Work: In general, volunteers help organize and develop the different activities of the foundation, which includes support before, during and after the medical missions. The work includes: - Office work, organizing medicine and inventory, folding clothes, helping organize and sort out donations, managing social media of the organization, joining the medical missions. For some missions the volunteer has to pay the airplane tickets, it depends on the geographical area where the mission is carried out. (e.g. a medical mission in the Amazonas).
