Tuve la oportunidad de conocer a quienes integran esta gran organización, es tanto el amor y la capacidad de agregar valor a la vida de tantos que unas pocas lineas se quedan cortas para poder comentarles acerca de mi experiencia. Dios tiene que ver en sus proyectos eso es seguro y la pasión que Neale transmite a su equipo es inevitable sentirla. Como bombero, como civil y como seguidor en redes he tenido la bendición de ser testigo de las cosas que Amedica hace por otros sin pretender algo de vuelta para ellos. Keep up the good work!!! God will be with you guys all the time.

Well, I don't know too much about anything. But I do know that a guy and his wife and two sons, collect fire trucks, park them in their driveway, park their cars on the the street, so that those, who live in a place on the world , most of us will never know, will have a safer night and life, knowing that there is help down the road, when needed. Who does this kind of stuff??? They do !!

I write this as a board member, but regardless of that, I must say that this has been an exciting year for AMEDICAusa, far exceeding what one might expect.

The programs have found wide acceptance, enthusiasm and acclaim from the recipients, as well as both the press and the Government of Guatemala, including the Award of the Monja Blanca Medal for humanitarian service to the people of Guatemala.

The volunteers, both in Guatemala and in the USA, have been extraordinary to work with and have truly done some amazing things with a shoestring budget.
