Cartagena Mission Trip

We need your donation to provide medical supplies and humanitarian aid to the impoverished areas where we travel to as a mission team. Currently, our mission team visits small islands off of the coast of Colombia, South America, including Tierra Bomba. Communities on these islands have desperate needs and are trapped in a cycle of extreme poverty. Our mission is to provide medical aid, basic health education and supplies to support day to day survival of the women and children that live in these areas. As well as providing aid, we desperately need to build water purification systems for these communities. The water purification systems would provide a basic life need. There is minimal infrastructure for the people that live here and basic services are unavailable and transportation extremely limited. The women and children that live in these communities have been put aside by society and local government. These women and children suffer from a lack of clean water, inadequate nutrition, sexual and mental abuse, poor education, no access to jobs and inequalities due to gender, age and social status. 

Together We Smile is a 501c3 non-profit organization, established by Dr. Sandra Vargas and husband, John Jennings, whose mission goal is to provide help for those struggling for basic life needs in impoverished communities in Colombia and other areas of South America. This will our third trip to this area near Cartagena and with your donation, we are able to dedicate more time and resources to help. Please be a part of making a difference. Any donation, no matter how big or small will help us make an impact.

Please know that 100% of your donation will be used toward supporting our mission. Our doctors and team members each donate his/her time and services to Together We Smile missions with the purpose of improving the conditions and giving hope to those in need. Your donation will make a difference! Please donate today!
