The Cinterandes Foundation was founded in 1990, it started with a program to operate the most needed people from the country. In 1994 we started with a surgical program called MOBILE SURGERY: an operating room built in a van. After nineteen and half years of work, by December 2013, 7.270 surgical operations have been performed in the countryside and suburbs, with excellent results, a very low complication rate and, most importantly, in a more humane way within the patient’s own environment.
The Cinterandes Foundation is a non-profit organization whose goal is to deliver surgical care in the most remote places, organize programs in family health and promote human development. We understand human development as the liberation of human potential, leading to mankind progress, well-being and improvement of quality of life of the individual and the community, with liberty and in harmony with the environment.
