Mission: Together in Hope works with marginalized communities in El Salvador, the Philippines, and works in partnership with Irish organization Youth Release in Ethiopia. Our goal is to help these communities move with dignity towards sufficiency and abundance. Together in Hope’s goal is to empower the poor to improve their lives through relational partnering that is just and that honors their dignity.
Results: We spent a lot of time this year fundraising for our medical mission to El Salvador. This was the first medical mission ever to take place in this community. With only one doctor and one dentist, we were able to see and treat approximately 500 patients.

With an outstanding staff and group of volunteers both in the States and in El Salvador, Together in Hope has provided medical/dental teams to poor communities in El Salvador to provide medical and dental care as well as preventative health and hygiene classes. The organization is working closely with the Rosa Blanca School whose student population numbers around 300 to purchase the land on which will be built a health clinic, and new school, and community center. Best group I have worked with in 17 years of guiding international work teams.
