How We Help

You help us put effective and empowering health care into practice.

The AMOS Health and Hope Legacy

The dream for AMOS began in 1967 with the work of Dr. Gustavo Parajón, a physician, medical missionary, and American Baptist Pastor. Faced with overwhelming need in the poorest rural communities, Dr. Parajón frequently remarked, “In Nicaragua, a doctor shouldn’t just be a doctor; a doctor must also be a teacher.”

This vision for empowerment gave birth to a broad health care initiative that continues to focus on local leadership development to improve the health of vulnerable people in need.
