Cinterandes is a unique organization which has developed a Mobile Surgery Unit- an operating room in a 24 ft Isuzu truck. They travel to remote areas of Ecuador and provide surgical services to those who do not have these services available to them. All of the surgical staff are volunteers. They have also developed the Saratoga Soroptmist Telemedicine Program at Cinterandes with a grant from the Soroptimist International of Saratoga County. These wonderful initiatives have been used as templates for organizations in other parts of the world in order for them to deliver care to the most remote and needy populations. This is a wonderful organization whose ideas are being used internationally. Medical students come from all over the world to learn about these ideas and to take part in these initiatives. I whole heartedly recommend this organization. I regularly donate and have volunteered at Cinterandes
