Medical Brigades

Medical Brigades

Started in March of 2015 by a small group of YWAM staff, the brigades are a response to a vulnerable community’s request for better and more accessible healthcare. The aim of the brigades is to provide access to basic primary health care as well as preventative services to the most marginalized communities in Mazatlan. They work together with volunteer medical professionals and the city’s health care institutions to provide a day of holistic and free medical care.

Since their inception, there have been five brigades in two different communities, serving more than 620 people. The volunteer team offers two brigades per year to every community they serve, with the goal of connecting those who need more regular care with other resources and services in the city.


Be Part of the Next One!

We are looking for volunteers:

Health Professionals: Dentists, physiotherapists, psychologists, counsellors, medical doctors, nurses, nutritionists, veterinarians, social workers and so on. 
General: People who can help us distribute clothes, help the doctors, play with the kids, and just in general with whatever is required that day.

Your church or youth group can help us; this is a great opportunity for the participants to to model their compassionate hearts, and be transformed as you experience healthcare and culture in a new form.

Service opportunities are the best way to discover vocation and calling, and one's own place to help people.
