The Curamericas Global Story


Our Mission:

Partner with underserved communities to make measurable and sustainable improvements in their health and wellbeing.

Our Vision: 

Bring Hope through Health: a world free of suffering from treatable and preventable causes

Our Reason:

Nearly 5.9 million children will not see their fifth birthday due to preventable and treatable illnesses like pneumonia and diarrhea. We all know that good health directly affects education, income and family and community wellbeing, so Curamericas Global works hard to bring about sustainable changes to the healthcare system in the communities with whom we partner. 

Curamericas depends on the support of individuals and organizations to provide lifesaving healthcare services and education where they are needed most. By becoming a supporter you are joining a group of compassionate and forward-thinking individuals who are dedicated to ending the unnecessary death of the world’s most vulnerable population, mothers, and children.

Our Strategic Plan: Five Years to Sustainability 2016 - 2021.
