FOUNDED IN 2007
FIBUSPAM’s mission is to empower impoverished Ecuadorian families to live healthy and productive lives by providing access to high-quality health care. Building on local trust and relationships, our ultimate goal is to ensure that each patient has access to the information, resources, and services needed to restore and maintain good health. We provide life-changing services to an average of 2,000 patients a month through our clinic and surgical center located in Riobamba, Ecuador and our mobile medical clinics that travel throughout the country.
Since our inception in 2007, FIBUSPAM has hosted dozens of foreign surgical teams who have successfully completed thousands of life-changing and life-saving procedures. The work of international medical teams not only brings specialized care to the region, but also provides an opportunity for valuable educational and cultural exchanges with local medical professionals. In addition to our in-county medical staff, FIBUSPAM partners with qualified international medical teams and offers short-term assignments starting at one week in length for volunteer doctors, dentists, and other health care professionals. We also partner with non-medical volunteers who are interested in supporting our mission.
FIBUSPAM is also currently coordinating earthquake response efforts in which international teams are welcome to participate.
