A world with health and hope for all.
Through partnerships with communities, churches, individuals, and organizations, we work alongside vulnerable people in Nicaragua to create a world where no child dies from a preventable disease. Together, we seek a world of peace and justice, with health and hope for all.
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.
