Mission Statement

Solidarity Bridge heals and empowers those living in poverty through critical medical care and Fair Trade partnerships.

Description

We serve the people of Bolivia, the poorest and most indigenous nation in South America, and their neighbors in Paraguay.

Our vision for sustainability makes us exceptionally effective. We not only treat the poor, but also work in partnership with our Bolivia-based sister organization, Puente de Solidaridad, to train and equip local medical personnel to better serve their fellow citizens. Thus the reverberations of our efforts last long into the future.

Although a Catholic affiliated organization, we welcome people of other faiths and those not affiliated with a faith community.

I’ve been volunteering with Solidarity Bridge since November 2015. It's a fabulous organization with warm, welcoming staff that is grateful and appreciative of volunteers’ contribution. I was invited for an interview soon after applying through Volunteer Match. The Executive Director and Operations Manager devoted significant time in knowing my background/interests and welcomed me aboard! The best part about working with Solidarity Bridge is that they endeavor to match volunteers’ skill sets/interests with the assignments. The organization provides healthy balance between directing volunteers(as required) while encouraging work autonomy. Office environment is positive, friendly and inclusive. New ideas are welcomed. Volunteers are made to feel an integral part of team by encouraging their participation in official meetings and social events. Join to the mission to help Bolivian communities access cutting edge medical/surgical care. I would highly recommend coming aboard!

I have been volunteering with Solidarity Bridge 10 hours/week for the last 2 years. This is a well-organized charity that leverages volunteer support very smartly. The roles being recruited for are high impact and offer substantial opportunity to learn new skills and/or function in a professional capacity. I have found the staff at Solidarity Bridge to be warm and welcoming and deeply appreciative of their volunteers. I highly recommend coming aboard!
