The Children’s Well-Being Foundation is making a significant difference in Costa Rica – we are providing health care to thousands of children who otherwise would have fallen through the cracks of their healthcare system. We provide primary care services, eye exams, and psychological services. We work with local and international partners to ensure the sustainability of the clinics and training opportunities for future doctors who are encouraged to pursue medical volunteerism.
The Children's Well-Being Foundation works with each group to tailor a program that works best for the participants. We customize programming and daily activities based on student interest so this is one of the best experiences of your life!
