We are a foundation that originated in 1986 with the goal of providing medical and hospital assistance to children and adolescents with limited economic resources, who suffer from complex pathologies.

OUR PURPOSE

Because we have always loved life, we provide less privileged children and adolescents access to high-quality, specialty health services.

Our strength and sustainability has allowed low-income children and adolescents with complex pathologies to access specialty and high-quality health services in order to save or considerably improve their quality of life.
Through different health programs, and thanks to the collaboration of various allies and volunteers, we work to improve the health and quality of life of our beneficiaries. We provide highly specialized medical services, supported by first-rate technology and infrastructure.
  • Vocation of service
  • Commitment to those who need it the most
  • Respect for human dignity
  • Ethics in all our actions
  • Permanent sense towards the common good
  • Excellence in our health care services
  • Comprehensive and integral care of our patients

We currently have 4 health programs:

Prevention of Childhood Blindness

We attend low-income children and adolescents with ophthalmological pathologies of varying degrees of complexity, from refractive problems (children who need glasses) to complex surgeries such as congenital cataracts, glaucoma, or malignant intraocular tumors (retinoblastoma). Our goal is to reduce the prevalence of severe ophthalmological diseases that lead to blindness or visual impairment in children throughout Ecuador.

Cleft Lip and Palate Clinic

A child born with a cleft lip and palate needs specialized medical care during all its stages of growth, that is, from 0 to at least 18 years of age. For this reason, since 2017, our Cleft Lip and Palate Clinic cares for low-income children with the aim of not only accompanying them surgically throughout the process, but also helping them to adequately reintegrate into society.

High Complex and Specialty Surgeries

Our program seeks to save or considerably improve the life quality of hundreds of children and adolescents who suffer from a high-risk or complex pathology and require a highly specialized surgery. The avant-garde infrastructure, added to the enormous experience of our doctors at Hospital Metropolitano, make each of these surgeries possible.

Medical Brigades

Our program aims to carry out clinical-surgical care processes in areas of natural disasters, or regions where people have limited economic and no access to quality health services. Up to date we have carried out 71 brigades in different regions of Ecuador.
