Change a LifeContribute to PACH
As way to both support our work in Ecuador, have fun reading with your children and grandchildren, and open a doorway to Andean culture we offer a children’s book written by PACH’s very own founder and president, Paul Martel. Now available for purchase. The story, narrated by a loveable guinea pig named Max, introduces Andean South American culture through the symbols carved on an ancient Incan sculpture.
In Ecuador, a little goes a long way, and our work is dependent on your generosity. Partners for Andean Community Health is a registered 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization, and donations are tax deductible.
Ninety-five percent of your contribution goes to our partner clinic, FIBUSPAM, in Riobamba, Ecuador and directly benefits children and families in need.
