Starting in 2012, Blanca’s House has sponsored three young children who required surgery in the United States. Their three cases all required more extensive care than could be provided in their local communities. Through Blanca’s Kids, we are able to provide free housing and care, while also arranging for them to receive free medical care on Long Island. Following their treatment here, Blanca’s Kids continues to ensure that they receive the continued medical treatment they require in their own countries. Blanca’s House is building four operating suites at el Centro Misionero de Salud “Maria Leonor Aguiar" in conjunction with the nonprofit foundation El Cielo para los Niños de Ecuador.

Blancas House mission to Ecuador was an experience of a life time. This was my second mission and what made this one so special was I got to bring my 15 yr old daughter Haley. She had no idea what she was getting herself into but I did and knew she would grow as a person from helping so many people in Ecuador. She found out that being apart of a team with like minded people is something she will never forget and is already talking about when we can go back. Blancas House is so organized and makes everyone feel like they are so special in this mission whether you are the surgeon or the students everyone matters and works hard to make it all happen. I will continue to volunteer for them and I couldn't think of other way I would want to give my time too

Traveling to Ecuador with Blanca's House for my first medical mission was by far one of the best experiences of my life. It was something I have always wanted to do and I knew it would be a great experience but I could have never imagined what an incredible experience it actually turned out to be. I had the opportunity to meet and work with an amazing group of people, learn so many things including what true team work is and be a part of an incredible team that together changed the lives of so many patients in need. This past mission not only did Blanca's House change the lives of patients, they also changed mine. I may have begun my first mission with a group of strangers but I can honestly say that I came home with family. I can NOT wait until the next mission and the opportunity to change many more lives!

Since 2009, I have had the pleasure of traveling on 19 medical missions to Ecuador and Nicaragua. Each team develops their own personality, but the compassion, dedication, teamwork, professionalism, and desire to help others remains constant among all team members. Whether we provide patients with their first dental exam or give them the ability to walk without pain after a total knee replacement; whether we remove cancer from a thyroid or fibroid uterus, or repair a cleft palate, we are providing unparalleled medical and surgical care for people who would otherwise have limited or no access to a doctor. Blanca's House does not waiver from its vision.

After six years of traveling with fellow volunteers, the life-changing experiences of helping others as part of a medical-mission team never ceases to amaze me. Fourteen missions and countless patients...each mission is new and revitalizing. The missions are well-organized, productive, and leave me with an incredible feeling of accomplishment.

Blanca's house has provided my family and I a life changing experience. With the help of many volunteers and financial and equipment donors from home, we were able to provide 18 total knee replacements for people with crippling pain and deformities of there knees. Working side by side with my children was well as my sister and niece was an experience of a life time. The leadership at Blanca's house has a can do attitude and when it comes to helping people in need nothing stops them. This was my second mission with Blanca's House and I am sure my family and I will enjoy many more in the future.

This Non-profit is fabulous. I have had the privilege of working with them; this past week was my seventh mission since 2009. I must admit you do get addicted to them. Every team member is thoroughly vetted and the opportunity for growth by the junior volunteers is an astounding accomplishment. The work is thoroughly rewarding and exhausting. It is what medicine and healthcare are truly about. We accomplish allot in the short time we are there. I am also impressed with knowing any donations I bring to the people actually get to the people. You can trust your donation dollars are being spent on the peoples needs and not someones luxurious administrative lifestyle. It becomes your extended family. If you are in the healthcare profession and have become disenfranchised with the sad state of Healthcare come and get your passion re-newed.
