What makes our work in Bolivia so special? Community involvement!!! Our partner on the ground, Etta Projects/ Proyectos Etta, empowers individuals and communities to become major players in solving their own health issues. By involving people- from health leaders to youth leaders- in identifying and defining their own health problems, together we strive to improve chronic illnesses in communities affected by health disparities and develop sustainable solutions that work for all involved.

Today is Huber’s birthday! He turns 14! While most kiddos his age wish for the newest gaming system or sports jersey, Huber says with a wide smile that his new fistula is his birthday present. We hope that Huber’s fistula brings him a happier and healthier year, and that he can now do things that his old catheter prohibited like swimming in the river, playing sports, and the freedom to just be a kid!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY HUBER! MAY ALL YOUR WISHES COME TRUE!

2021 Tour DaVita: ¡Bienvenido a Nicaragua! Bridge of Life started working in Nicaragua in 2016. Since then, we’ve engaged 40 volunteers to provide more than 2,200 chronic disease screenings to locals. Although the COVID-19 pandemic postponed our travel to Nicaragua, six community health workers have continued our work by providing medication and health education and testing to 220 people identified as having hypertension, diabetes and chronic kidney disease. With your support, we will provide blood pressure and glucose monitors and routine medications to these chronic disease patients in the El Crucero region. Our goal is to ensure routine monitoring and effective management of hypertension and diabetes for these patients. #tourdavita #tourdavita2021 #moveittogether #aroundtheworld #bridgeoflife #Nicaragua

¡Bienvenidos a Nicaragua!

So close to the finish line!!!!

Next stop, Jamaica!

2021 Tour DaVita: You’ve reached the Philippines! This country is currently in a state of health emergency due to recent high records of confirmed cases of COVID-19 (around 25,000 daily). Three out of four cases recorded are being identified as the more transmissible Delta variant of COVID-19. During this unprecedented global health crisis, Bridge of Life is working to protect vulnerable dialysis patients in the Philippines. Over the next year, we hope to strengthen the skills of dialysis health workers and equip them with the tools to deliver safe and effective dialysis care. We might be distant, but we’re still helping the Philippines to fight COVID-19 together! #tourdavita #tourdavita2021 #moveit #moveittogether #bridgeoflife #Philippines

I give regularly to Bridge of Life to provide ongoing support of their critical mission to serve the medical needs of the world. I had the honor of being the first pharmacist to go to Nicaragua with the Bridge of Life's primary care mission in November of 2016. I also had the honor of meeting and working with Dr. Luis Ocampo during the trip.
Another awesome program from an amazing company.
Not all heroes wear capes.

Hey everyone!!! I recently participated in a BOL mission and am now going to participate in Tour Davita, which this year, is raising money for BOL. I couldn’t be more excited about that and give me heart to BOL. Any donations help raise money for BOL and all they do! Link below if anyone can donate! Thank you!
Hello Dear Friends Of Bridge of Life, by any chance, do you have an e mail adress that I can to contact you?
Good job
Great work
Thanks for your efforts abroad, Bridge of Life. We're doing a large study of best practices on short-term medical volunteer projects, and would be thrilled if any of your previous volunteers would be willing to do a quick 5 minute survey on their experience: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/2QPJKXZ It would be great to have you involved!
