Central American
Medical Outreach (CAMO)

CAMO provides more than 160,000 life-saving services each year to impoverished people who otherwise would not have access to aid.

“As a Peace Corps nurse, I witnessed 31 babies die in one month as a result of not having the supplies, equipment and educated staff to save them. I cannot bring back those 31 babies, but today…infants and adults are being saved daily due to the CAMO model.”

– Kathryn Tschiegg, Founder
