Impact A Village supported Quina Care, a charitable organization whose mission is to improve health care in Putumayo, a remote district located in the north of the Ecuadorian Amazon rainforest, bordering Colombia and Peru. A forgotten part of Ecuador, it is one of the most remote, poorest and unstable areas where basic facilities such as education and healthcare are extremely limited. In November of 2021, the doors of Hospital San Miguel were opened! The people of Ecuador’s Putumayo region are now receiving quality medical care and hospital services for the first time ever. Local residents, government officials, Catholic Bishop and clergy of the region, police and military are in full support and were present for the grand opening celebration. All staff hires were local, and the first wave of international medical volunteers were on duty. Medical Directors, Dr.’s Jacob & Carolien van der Ende were elated.
In December 2023, Impact A Village ceased operations and is no longer accepting donations or making grants. Thank you for your support over the years.
