When Dr. Gustavo Parajón began his community health work in Nicaragua in the late 1960s, he cast a vision of a model that could reduce preventable deaths and improve the health and well-being of people who suffer from the unjust conditions of poverty in Nicaragua.

Drs. David and Laura Parajón continued his vision when they founded AMOS, and that vision lives on in our ministry today.

As a way to honor Dr. Gustavo’s legacy of faith, justice, and hope, we are proud to present The Parajón Society.
