I have been a member of PPW for over 15 years. I am humbled to be a part of a team that helps transform the lives of underserved Ecuadorian children through corrective orthopedic surgeries.

I have been immeasurably fortunate to have had the opportunity to work with PPW for over 20 years. What I learned from and experienced with my Ecuadorian colleagues, the patients, their families and my fellow PPW members about medicine and caring helped me to become a better physician and to open my eyes to the needs and rights of those I share this world with.

Working with PPW these past 20 years has made a profound difference in my life. Our PPW teams have been most fortunate to be able to work with the children and health workers in Ecuador. The late Paul Farmer said: “The essence of global health equity is the idea that something so precious as health might be viewed as a right”. I view that our work is to provide dignity to the children of Ecuador by helping them realize and achieve this right.
