Adapting to Covid-19

Despite the pandemic, we continue our vital work with the Rosa Vera Fund. Our partners at Consejo de Salud Rural Andino are taking many precautions, while still providing our patients with the care they so desperately need.

Work trip 2019

For our summer work trip this year, Drs. Darlene and Jon Melk were joined by board member Lesley Alderman and her son Charlie. Check out the thank you video that Leslie and Charlie put together for our generous donors!

Fundraiser at La Escuelita

Our Bolivian colleagues from CSRA and the RVF held a very successful fundraiser at La Escuelita on May 19. They raised over $1,000 for the school and therapy center that serves the children from the Rosa Vera Fund!

Kids Helping Kids

During our December 2017 work trip to Montero, Bolivia, we were accompanied by high school juniors Jordan Craig and Lucia Ledesma. Their job was to capture still photos and video of our patients, families and RVF staff. They are pictured with RVF patient Yoselín and her cousin.
